Create your own single sign on plugin for MushRaider

First, I already love you =)

The MushRaider’s bridge API is very simple. HTTP request is sent to the plugin with the login and crypted password, et you only have to return json with the auth credentials, easy right ?

A small exemple :

Bridge exemple for MushRaider
More infos on
header('Content-Type: application/json');
// Secret key added in MushRaider's admin
$salt = 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY';
// Test if we get the login & password infos
if(empty($_POST['login']) || empty($_POST['pwd'])) {
    echo json_encode(array('authenticated' => false));
// Decrypt password
// No reason to change this
$iv_size = mcrypt_get_iv_size(MCRYPT_RIJNDAEL_128, MCRYPT_MODE_ECB);
$iv = mcrypt_create_iv($iv_size, MCRYPT_RAND);
$pwd = mcrypt_decrypt(MCRYPT_RIJNDAEL_128, $salt, stripslashes($_POST['pwd']), MCRYPT_MODE_ECB, $iv);
* Test here if the user exist and have the good permissions etc...
* Code goes here...
// Return json to mushraider
$userInfos = array();
$userInfos['authenticated'] = true; // Or false if don't
$userInfos['email'] = '[email protected]'; // Replace it with the user's email, offcourse
$userInfos['role'] = 'member'; // Optional parameter, force & set the role for this user. Can be 'member' (default), 'officer' or 'admin'
echo json_encode($userInfos);

This is the simplest exemple for MushRaider single sign on plugin, you can adapat this code to your own system. If you have any problem or question feel free to head to the forum.
