The Password Sentry Sitelok Plugin is a great case example of how easy it is to integrate Password Sentry into third party applications. Sitelok is a powerful PHP / MySQL based membership software script that allows you to password protect pages to create members only areas on your website. We partnered with Sitelok in 2015 in a cross-promotional partnership. Password Sentry is an excellent fit for Sitelok to protect their password protected members areas from password sharing.
Sitelok was quick to develop a plugin: Password Sentry Plugin. It is a FREE plugin for Sitelok end-users: although one requires a purchased Password Sentry license to utilize the plugin. Now, Sitelok clients can quickly and easily integrate Password Sentry into their Sitelok application to protect and harden their members area.
However, if you need to integrate Password Sentry into any application (third party or custom app), we can do this for FREE: whether to alter the code of your app, or develop a plugin to bridge your app and Password Sentry. In the case of Sitelok, they handled it from their end. How easy to integrate? Very easy! Basically it requires adding a few lines of code to your app’s login code. The code passes user IP address and Username to the Password Sentry tracking script (sentry.php). Password Sentry processes and tracks the login, and returns a response: PASS or FAIL. Then just a matter of editing your app to respond. For example, redirect user to Password Sentry defined URL of your choosing (away from members) in the case of FAIL.
It’s just that easy, and it’s exactly what the Sitelok Plugin does. This example demonstrates the versatility of Password Sentry in integrating into third party apps like Sitelok to monitor logins to protect a site from password sharing.
