# +MessageVerifier+ makes it easy to generate and verify messages which are signed

# This is useful for cases like remember-me tokens and auto-unsubscribe links where the
# session store isn't suitable or available.
#
# Remember Me:
# cookies[:remember_me] = @verifier.generate([@user.id, 2.weeks.from_now])
#
# In the authentication filter:
#
# id, time = @verifier.verify(cookies[:remember_me])
# if time < Time.now
# self.current_user = User.find(id)
