Erdiko Authorize

Package version CircleCI license

Authorize

An Erdiko package to provide user authorization.

Compatibility

This package is compatible with PHP 5.4 or above and the latest version of Erdiko.

Installation

Add the eridko/authorize package using composer with this command:

composer require erdiko/authorize

Requirements

Between its requirements we count on Pimple and Symfony Security. In case of Pimple, we choose this package to manage Dependency Injection, allowing us to add more flexibility and extensibility. It also adds compatibility with Symfony Security module.

How to Use

Once you have installed the package you are ready to start. Basic Role based Admin validation works out of the box!

To start using it in your code just create an instance of Authorizer class. This class will expect an instance of AuthenticationManagerInterface from symfony/security package as a constructor parameter.

Here's an example:

class AuthenticationManager implements AuthenticationManagerInterface
{
    private $authenticationManager;

    public function __construct()
    {
        // implements UserProviderInterface
        $userProvider = new InMemoryUserProvider(
            array(
                'bar@mail.com' => array(
                    'password' => 'asdf1234',
                    'roles'    => array('ROLE_ADMIN'),
                ),
                'foo@mail.com' => array(
                    'password' => 'asdf1234',
                    'roles'    => array('ROLE_USER'),
                ),
            )
        );

        // Create an encoder factory that will "encode" passwords
        $encoderFactory = new \Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Encoder\EncoderFactory(array(
            // We simply use plaintext passwords for users from this specific class
            'Symfony\Component\Security\Core\User\User' => new PlaintextPasswordEncoder(),
        ));

        // The user checker is a simple class that allows to check against different elements (user disabled, account expired etc)
        $userChecker = new UserChecker();
        // The (authentication) providers are a way to make sure to match credentials against users based on their "providerkey".
        $userProvider = array(
            new DaoAuthenticationProvider($userProvider, $userChecker, 'main', $encoderFactory, true),
        );


        $this->authenticationManager = new AuthenticationProviderManager($userProvider, true);
    }

    public function authenticate(TokenInterface $unauthenticatedToken)
    {

        try {
            $authenticatedToken = $this->authenticationManager->authenticate($unauthenticatedToken);
            Authorizer::startSession();
            $tokenStorage = new TokenStorage();
            $tokenStorage->setToken($authenticatedToken);
            $_SESSION['tokenstorage'] = $tokenStorage;
        } catch (\Exception $failed) {
            // authentication failed
            throw new \Exception($failed->getMessage());
        }
        return $authenticatedToken;
    }
}

It’s a best practice to add instance creation in the _before hook. An example of this best practice looks like this:

...
    public function _before()
    {
        $authManager = new AuthenticationManager();
        $this->auth = new Authorizer($authManager);
        // Run the parent beore filter to prep the theme
        parent::_before();
    }
...

You will then have a $this->auth attribute available to use in any get or post action. This will be used in can methods that determine access, allowing you to grant or reject access to a resource.

For example, if current user has ADMIN role, then it will be redirected to admin dashboard (GRANTED), otherwise the user will be redirected to login page (REJECTED).

   php public function getDashboard()
   {
       if($this->auth->can("VIEW_ADMIN_DASHBOARD")) {
           // Add page data
           $this->setTitle('Erdiko Admin Dashboard');
           $this->addView('examples/admin/dashboard');
       } else {
           \erdiko\core\helpers\FlashMessages::set("You SHALL NO Pass!!", "danger");
           $this->redirect('/users/login');
       }
   }

Note that in this example, current user is an instance of Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Authentication\Token\TokenInterface, stored in $_SESSION['tokenstorage'].

Also available is the “VIEW_ADMIN_DASHBOARD” attribute we will use to grant or reject access for the current user.

You can use the same logic to validate Models by adding a __construct method where you will place the authorize creation

   public function __construct()
   {
       $authManager = new AuthenticationManager();
       $this->auth = new Authorizer($authManager);
   }

Same for GRANT/REJECT:

   public function doSomething1()
   {
       if($this->auth->can("CAN_DO_1")) {
           return "success something one";
       } else {
           throw new \Exception("You are not granted");
       }
   }

Customization

This package provides you with a framework to create custom validation. There are two different methods to create custom validation:

  • Custom Voters

Implement Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Authorization\Voter\VoterInterface interface, and pass them in an array as second argument of Authorizer constructor.

  • Custom Validator

Or you can create a Validator class that implements erdiko\authorize ValidatorInterface interface. Then you will have to register all validators in /app/config/default/authorize.json, and voila, all the custom validation logic you've created is already available to the authorizer.

authorize.json

{
     "validators":{
       "custom_types": [{
         "name": "example",
         "namespace": "app_validators_example",
         "classname": "ExampleValidator",
         "enabled": true
       }]
     }
   }

In these validator classes you will be able to define custom attributes, "VIEW_ADMIN_DASHBOARD" as we mention above, we might want to add "IS_PREMIUM_ACCOUNT", or any other attributes you want.

Note that namespace field of the above JSON indicate the class namespace and is related to the app root folder, e.g. /app/validators/example/ExampleValidator.php

Let's implement the example class registered in the example JSON.

class ExampleValidator implements ValidatorInterface
{
    public static function supportedAttributes()
    {
        return array('IS_PREMIUM_ACCOUNT');
    }

    public function supportsAttribute($attribute)
    {
        return in_array($attribute, self::supportedAttributes());
    }

    public function validate($token)
    {
        $result = false;
        $user = $token->getUser();
        if (!$user instanceof UserInterface) {
            $result = false;
        } else {
            $result = ($user->getRole()=='ROLE_PREMIUM');
        }
        return $result;
    }
}
