Got a site almost complete however the user authentication isn't working. Simply put, I wish my website to reference a PHP file, which is echoing a users authentication level. Via the Actionscript, Flash pushes the user to the frame on the timeline they have the authority to view.
My PHP Code <?phpecho 'checkLog=999';?>
My AS2 Code - This code is pasted in the first frame of the timeline appname="mikesapp"loadVariablesNum("newlogin.php", 0, "POST"); //This verifies the users status and forwards them to the portion of the website they are authorized to access.////Auth Level 100 = Regional Access, Auth Level 200 = Franchise Access, Auth Level 300 = Employee Access, Auth Level 400 = Denied Access and Back Button as they do not have the privileges to move forward from there.//
Because the "checkLog" value is 999, the user should be forwarded to the "denied" label in the timeline however it is not as the site simply loops over and over. I'm sure Flash is accessing the "newlogin.php" file as when I rename it, flash errors stating it cannot locate the file. I have changed it back to the correct name since.
I have a web application developed using flex and cakephp. My client need to make a desktop application of that web application using Adobe Air. The conversion of the flex to Air is done successfully. I the flex application the communication of flex and cakephp is handled using a remotes controller. In air application I have a problem of authenticating the user with cakephp default user authentication
Almost everything is in the title : Here's what I'd like to do :A nice html page with a php authentication process (http first then http**s** & so on) Launch a flex app which knows (I don't know how (this is the actual question !)) the user has already been authenticated and display his/her stuff he/she has to do for the day (or whatever...).
Of course if someone try to call directly the flex app I would display an "authentication error" message and then redirect to the authentication page.I'm sorry for my English which is perfectible.I was thinking about the session cookie : first authenticate then ass a variable on the server side, something like :
I'm using Google Engine App with Python. I want to add custom user authentication. How is it done, with the best practices? I want custom authentication because the app is built in Flex and I don't want to redirect to an HTML page.
The user value object is like this: class User(db.Model): email = db.EmailProperty(required = True, indexed = True) masked_password = db.StringProperty(required = True) # maybe more things here
I would like to mask the password, is there some built in function in GAE? Then, how I will remember the current user? Through sessions and cookies? Or what else?
we would like to purchase Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5 to solve the following problem
1.Broadcast network internet lectures on a paid subscription,with the possibility user authentication.
2. Broadcast video and audio.
3. Broadcasting from several sources (1 camera, 2 camera, TV tuner, etc.)within a single stream with the possibility of the user to choose the viewing source, other sources at this time, you can view the preview.
4. The intended audience for 10 000 users and more. 5. Estimated flow rate of 1 megabit per second.
1. Is it possible for broadcasters to use a single server, or they need more? What configuration? 2. Does Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5 multicast? 3. How to make the system user authorization? Additional software, plug-ins? 4. How many users can simultaneously connect to the broadcast Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5 and how we calculate the bandwidth and outbound traffic?
I'm using Spring, Spring Security, BlazeDS, Flex and spring-flex.I know that I can call channelSet.login() and channelSet.logout() to hook into Spring Security for authentication.channelSet.authenticated apparently only knows about the current Flex session, as it always starts off as false, until you call channelSet.login().hat I want to do: Check from Flex to know if a user is already in a session.
I have a windows server(2003) with FMS 3.01 and already installed Authentication Add-in (3)... Already open' up a command prompt and added users using users.exe ($ROOT/conf) and checking them after, but when i go and publish something with FMLE 3, it still doesn't promp for a user and pass login. Restarted the server and everything else, and nothing seems to work!
Preferably something that integrates well with a Flex front end. Yes the Spring Security guys say this is possible, but all examples seem to use legacy jsp tag libraries making them half useless as examples.I don't want to spend a month setting up and learning how to use a security tool. I would like a tool which supports using annotations (@RolesAllowed etc), MINIMAL XML, and 'remember-me' features (not cookie based).Apache Shiro seems to support Flex/Silverlight/Swing as well but I'd like to know if there are any other alternatives that are NOT container specific.
I'm using FMS 3.5.3 Developer edition and trying some VOD solution before I can proceed to purchase FMIS 3.5. Basically, I need to have a mechanism for certain sets of flash movies to be secured by user authentication.
Now, for Apache, I can secure a directory of webpages by using .htaccess; whilst for IIS or Windows Media Service, I can use NTFS ACL at directory level. My question is: How can I setup a VOD subdirectory that every video files inside need to be authenticated before streaming to client. The authentication authority can be either Active Directory or LDAP.
I've read the developer guide and notice that such authentication requires both client-side and server-side ActionScript. But I'm not a Flash author and I don't have Adobe Flash CSx installed. Can't this simple authentication be done at configuration level?
I'm trying to download Flash CS5 through Download Accelerator Plus (DAP). I've already logged into Adobe website but my DAP keeps on asking username and password authentication for trials2.adobe.com. It does not accept my Adobe username and password. What then is the username and password for trials2.adobe.com supposed to be?
I am having a scenario where I need to access a service but when accessing it, I get an HTTP authentication popup of browser. I don't the users to see this. I talked to a guy working on same thing in some other technology and he mentioned that they are using Digest Authentication. I need to know how this can be achieved in Flash.
The FMS_auth_addin_win_v3.msi insists to put the files into C:Program Files (x86)AdobeFlash Media Server 4conf but the server is installed in C:Program FilesAdobeFlash Media Server 4. I nuked all the Abobe content in the 32 bit area, but it keeps re-installing it there. The server used to run 32-bit FMS 3.5, but since we upgraded, I can't get the authentication addin to work. Can I just copy the thing over?
I'd like to set up a user name and passowrd that the user enters in the Air app. Is it then just a matter of sending POST data to the php file, and have it check the user and pass variables? Is that a reasonably safe way to do it? If not, can someone please point me in th edirection of a good tutorial that they're used on this topic?
I need to authorise my Flash game (which runs on Facebook) users against my game server. I'm able to get their data like id, access token, etc, from Facebook on the client (I'm using the Flash Facebook API) but I'm not sure how to authorize them on my game server (e.g. do a login with a database query). One scenario that I have on my mind:
If I could get the same access token from Facebook on both the client (which I already do) and the server (with, for example, a redirect URL, which I tried but does not seems to work), then I could easily compare the two tokens (together with the user IDs) and thus authorize the user. UPDATE To put it simpler, I want to catch the token that is returned from Facebook on the server-side before it gets to the client (it can be a simple PHP script that parses the URL token parameter). Next, store it in the DB on the server, and when the client queries the server, I can do the comparison.
I am creating a website which will contain both ASP.NET pages and a Flash applet.I want to encapsulate my business logic in a WCF service which will be exposed through two endpoints: One accesssible over the Internet through HTTP(S), for use by the Flash client, and one accessible within the data center for use by the application servers.If this does not seem like a good approach, then stop me here; otherwise, I'll move on...
I know WCF supports using the .NET Framework's built-in security framework (System.Security) to enforce access control, and I would like to take advantage of this.The question, then, is: How do I pass the token to the WCF service when it is called by Flash, and how do I process the token on the server? WCF has an "issued token" authentication mode, but it appears this is intended to be used in a full-blown federation scenario with a Secure Token Service and SAML tokens--a bit more complexity that I really want. It is possible to use this mode with my own "simple random-string" tokens? If so, how? Keep in mind this needs to be compatible with Flash.I could potentially pass the token in a header (either a SOAP header or an HTTP header). In this case, once I've determined which user is making the request, how do I inform the framework so that the System.Security checks will work?Is there a different approach altogether that I should consider?Anything that avoids sending passwords in every request, lets me use System.Security, and works with Flash is a possibility.
I want to have flex portlets side by side with JSP portlets. How can we implement the authentication mechanism? [ Authentication will be handled by the portal and how can we share the same session with flex portlets ]
I am developing an application in Adobe Flex. This application is to be hosted on a Joomla Website. I want to achieve Single Sign On between my Joomla website and this Flex Application. The Users log in using the default Joomla Mechanisms however I want the username as well as some other details about the user inside my Flex Application.
i have a flash application connected with a script on a remote server(X)different from the server hosting the website(Y)the application on server X needs to get some user information so i need to identify the user by what i have in the cookie
remote server X will get those informations from server Y is there any way i can get the user name or user id from the CAKEPHP cookie var?the authentication is the one found on cakephp website
Some background: I have a Flex app embedded in an HTML page and am using Flex to send a soap request to my Java backend that does some authentication depending on the username and password entered in the Flex form. If I enter the correct login everything works fine and the Flex app can continue making further requests. But with an incorrect username/password, an "Authentication Required" dialog box pops up in my Browser and my Flex app won't respond with its proper handler until I click cancel. I'd like to get rid of the dialog box somehow,
What I would like to do is to use ASP.NET impersonation to authenticate a Flash app as a user in IIS so that the file dependencies related to the flash file ( XML config files, and PHP API calls ) are not anonymously accessible when users try to access them directly through the URL. So, instead of displaying the contents of an XML config file, it should tell the unauthenticated user they do not have permission to view the file.
Is this possible? Right now I'm looking into request headers and the settings in IIS for authentication.
So I found out how to use Basic Authentication through help posted here. The problem I'm running into is that even though the flash app sends the appropriate request. Which is handled fine in FF, Chrome, and Safari. It still displays the login pop-up box for Opera and IE. Does anyone know why IE and Opera behave differently with Basic Authentication?
I'm writing a basic RSS reader in ActionScript 3 that accesses the RSS feed in a WordPress blog. It works fine for standard WordPress blogs, but I need to access one that requires users to log in with a username and password.
Is is possible to somehow send the username/password in the URLRequest? Perhaps by appending to the end of URLRequest something like [code]...
i would like to open a URL in a new browser tab from Flash (by clicking on a button). The page is protected with basic http authentication (the browser displays the login window), but i would like this authentication to be automatic.
The code i have now is this:
Code: var urlRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("some_URL"); urlRequest.data = new URLVariables("name=John+Doe"); urlRequest.method = URLRequestMethod.GET;
I have a system where users authenticate over Flash and then they should be able to browse various folders on the server, which are protected with the same user/pass and i don't want them to enter the authentication twice.
it there any way to create an advanced password authentication in flash ? I saw the tutorial here :[URL] but I want to take it to the next level an create a more advanced authentication that will draw the passwords from a database or something external ( asp, php ). what is the most secure way to do it ?
I was pretty confused while stetting up a FMS and reading the docs. Live Streaming is by default enabled for everyone without password. Then I discovered and installed the authentication module. But this does not work and is not well documented. Also the download page states that it will work with FMS but some lines below it is stated that: "the Flash Media Server Authentication Add-In is only available for the Flash Media Interactive Server and the Flash Media Developer Server. This Add-In does not work with the Flash Media Streaming Server." hmmm. Confusing. How can I prevent that everyone is using my server for live streaming?
I use Ubuntu server 10.4 64bit and have Flash streaming server 3.5.5 working fine For security reason I also installed Authentication Addin on FMS and was able to add user using command /opt/adobe/fms/conf/users add -u FlashSAC -p pass. I verified and the user FlashSAC was added to the User.dat located opt/adobe/fms/conf. However when I used Live Encoder 3.1 to send a live stream to FMS, it worked without prompting for username and password at all. I tested Authentication Addin with Flash streaming server 3.5.5 on Windows XP and it prompted for username and password.
I am working on creating an FMS application which does an authentication on server side too. I hvae gone through a number of tutorials and the developer guide but not able to find a correct way to start working on this. I have been able to create a sample application which authenticates few parameters on the server side using the main.asc file with code for authentication on onConnect method. My main doubt right now is how do I set up an application which streams videos depending on this authentication. I am confused on how to setup a new application, how to setup the application.XML, which folder to store the files etc. Can some one guide me on this or give me reference to an application which actually does. A sample/tutorial which actually setups a custom FMS application for simple video streaming from scratch step-by-step would also do.
