Hi All,

Is there a way to have a login system that needs a file that is stored on the users computer present, similar to online banking sites that use a locally stored certificate (file) for verification or redirect to another page?

Thank you,

Max

There are a lot of security limitations on what you can see on the local machine, certainly in PHP and even in Javascript. I don't think that you will be able to view a local document but nothing stops you from uploading it (manual file choice by the user) and then verifying it on the server. You could write a cookie once it is verified so the next time, you would check the cookie instead.

At this stage I am using a login with cookies to give the remember me function but I feel that this leaves to many doors open and what I need is more like a x.509 PKI (SSL) login.

Do you know how this works or where I can start to find out more about SSL.

Thank you,

Max
