This package can store and validate user API keys in files.
readme for class_APIKey.php This set of classes is a response to a request at this URL: https://www.phpclasses.org/recommend/854-A-random-API-key-generator-to-server-as-access-restriction-to-AP.html There are 3 classes in the set: Abstract class APIKey This is the base class that the other classes extend. It has one method, generate(), which creates a unique API key. It also defines two other methods. Method validate() test a given API key for validity and returns the name of the person it belongs to, or throws APIKeyException. Method storeKey() takes the name of a person, calls generate() to get a new API key, and stores the name:key combination in a place that validate() can find. Class APIKeyValidation This is the concrete class that provides the two abstract methods called for by APIKey. When validate() cannot associate an API key with a user name it throws APIKeyException. Class APIKeyException Extends Exception and provides a message and an HTTP code. There are 2 demonstration files in hte set: Script demo_APIKey.php exercises the classes. Text File demo_APIKey.txt simulates a database or flat file of valid API keys. Todo: Add a method to invalidate an API key.
