16. Protecting the access to the site: passwords
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
Managing the access to a site by password is required in two cases:
  1. Protecting personal details.
  2. Restricting the access to a site.
Protecting personal details
To access personal details, the Web user can specify a password. In a business site, a password defined by the Web user allows him to access the details of his previous orders.
In this case, the management of site access requires:
  • an identification:
    When he first connects, the Web user identifies himself and enters his password.
    During the connections, the user identifies himself and he accesses the features reserved to him (and to his history, ...).
  • the ability for a Web user to retrieve a forgotten password.
WEBDEV is supplied with all the resources required to manage personal passwords.
Restricting the access to a site
By default, an Internet site can be accessed by any Web user. But a site is not always intended for the general public: some features can be reserved to some types of Web users (site administrator, ...).
In this case, the site manager assigns a password to each Web user. This password cannot be modified. This password gives access to specific features.
For example, in a business site:
  • a specific password will be assigned to salespeople: they will be able to access the sales statistics, ...
  • a specific password will be assigned to the members of marketing team: they will be able to on-line new products.
WEBDEV allows you to easily manage these different types of access to a site.
