Federated Wiki - Security Plug-in: Friends
This module creates its own secrets which it maintains in the
status/owner.json file. No internet access is necessary to claim sites at will and ensure single owner access once claimed. We expect a farm operator is "friends" with each user and is available to help restore the long-lived session should it be lost.
Write access to a claimed site can be restored by clicking on the padlock and pasting in the site's
secret. This can be retrieved from the
status/owner.json file by the site operator.
Launch the wiki server with three additional arguments,
--security_type friends --cookieSecret 'REPLACE-THIS-SECRET' --session_duration n
The security_type friends specifies to handle authentication with this module. Setting a
cookieSecret makes sure that the session cookie encryption is consistent between server restarts. Otherwise each wiki owner would be logged out following a wiki server restart and would need to use the reclaim code to acquire a new session.
session_duration allows you to set a longer time for the sites sessions.
n is the number of days that the session will last, the default is 7 days.
