Technical name users_key

Adds support for authentication using a uniq KEY instead of password.

This module allows users to login with a generated key insted of the password, which is usable for URL-logins. For example shortcuts on tablets and smartphones, one click on the icon opens any view as the right user.

Security Considerations

Its possible for an administrator to create URL for logins without knowing the users real password and the real password never has to be exposed in documents, sms or mails.

The key does not change when the user changes his password.

But still; the key are just as vulnerable as a password if exposed.

If the key are exposed you have to change the salt and distribute the new key.
