http vs sessions


Recommended Posts

wondernate, your question doesn't make much sense.




Sessions are a way to give HTTP, a stateless protocol, a sort of psuedo-state.



(This assumes you don't have SSL.  If you're using HTTPS, either method should be fine.  As an end user I prefer PHP authentication since it seems cleaner and less obtrusive.)


Or do you mean HTTP authentication?  Because then it depends on many, many things.  Typically I would go with no, although technically in a way HTTP authentication could potentially be more secure if the password were encrypted since the password using PHP authentication would not be encrypted (unless some ghetto JS came into play).
