CGI::SecureState is a transparent, secure statefulness for CGI programs. SYNOPSIS use CGI::SecureState; my @memory = qw(param1 param2 other_params_to_remember); my $cgi = new CGI::SecureState(-stateDir => "states", -mindSet => forgetful, -memory => @memory); print $cgi->header(), $cgi->start_html; my $url = $cgi->state_url(); my $param = $cgi->state_param(); print I am a stateful CGI session."; printI am a different ", "script that also has access to this session.quot;; Very Important Note for Users of CGI::SecureState 0.2x For those still using the 0.2x series, CGI::SecureState changed enormously between 0.26 and 0.30. Specifically, the addition of mindsets is so important that if you run your old scripts unchanged under CGI::SecureState 0.3x, you will receive nasty warnings (likely both in output web pages and your log files) that will tell you not to do so. Please do yourself a favor by re-reading this documentation, as this mysterious mindset business (as well as all the scrumptious new features) will be made clear. Of course, any and all comments on the changes are welcome. If you are interested, send mail to behroozi@cpan.org with the subject "CGI::SecureState Comment". A Better Solution to the stateless problem. HTTP is by nature a stateless protocol; as soon as the requested object is delivered, HTTP severs the objects connection to the client. HTTP retains no memory of the request details and does not relate subsequent requests with what it has already served. There are a few methods available to deal with this problem, including forms and cookies, but most have problems themselves, including security issues (cookie stealing), browser support (cookie blocking), and painful implementations (forms). CGI::SecureState solves this problem by storing session data in an encrypted state file on the server. CGI::SecureState is similar in purpose to CGI::Persistent (and retains much of the same user interface) but has a completely different implementation. For those of you who have worked with CGI::Persistent before, you will be pleased to learn that CGI::SecureState was designed to work with Perls taint mode and has worked flawlessly with mod_perl and Apache::Registry for over two years. CGI::SecureState was also designed from the ground up for security, a fact which may rear its ugly head if anybody tries to do something tricksy..
