Fast login

Post by domm » Sat May 04, 2019 4:40 am

Enable login through Fast (https://fast.co) login button.

Would support 100% of users, and is really easy for users to login.

Spammer?
There is a "Domm" in the chat-popup on the linked site.

No not a spammer, just interested in getting phpbb sites onboard.

Happy to personally help with integration.

There looks to me as if there maybe some security issues around using this as a means of logging in to phpBB boards. Also I cannot see what advantage this has over using "Remember me".

What security issues exactly?

This is a Passwordless authentication that offers one click login for people using Fast from any other Fast powered website.

The easiest way to login.

The website does not tell anything.
How does this work exactly?
phpBB requires username and password. Will this be stored at fast.co instead? How does the button know who I am?

The default phpbb login form asks for a username and password, however every user has a matching email address in the database.

Fast (on all services) authenticated based on email addresses, so Fast would redirect an authenticated user to a phpBB site with their email and a one time hash/password.

The phpBB site would then verify via api the email and hash are valid and if so would then lookup the matching user in the database from the email and log that user in.

How would this work if phpBB's "allow e-mail re-use" is enabled?

Depends on implementation, you could provide an account chooser after authentication.

I guess this will never go into the core of phpBB.
So, easiest way to make it available to phpBB-boards is creating a extension. phpBB already provides a oauth interface, so maybe you can connect your system via oauth?
You'll find the developer documentation on area51, together with other usefull imformation.

:oops: didn' t see the forum he postet in . From his wording I assumed a core change request.
The linked website doesn't provide any information without registration, so it's hard to guess how that system works. Therefore my hint to the already existing OAuth interface within phpBB.
