Phauxth is an authentication library for Phoenix, and other Plug-based, web applications. It is designed to be secure, extensible, easy to use and well-documented.
For a general overview of some of the goals of Phauxth and its basic usage, see this post.
This guide shows how you can set up a new Phoenix project with Phauxth.
Authentication and authorization
The core Phauxth library handles authentication, verifying who the user is.
For information about authorization, or access control, see the Authorization page in the wiki.
If you have set up your app using the Phauxth installer,
authorize.ex file in the controllers directory provides examples
of functions you can use to authorize users' access to resources.
