Project description

The purpose of this package is to provide an extra verification step for Plone when self-registration is enabled.

When you install this product, before a user can register with the Plone site, they first must verify they have a valid email address. This done by sending the user an email with a unique verification url that includes a randomly generated code.

This is meant to be a proof-of-concept solution. There are no tests and I haven’t spent a lot of time on it.

Yes, I know very sophisticated spam bots can also automate the email verification process. To address that, the next step for this package would be to check the email address against database/API with a known list of bad emails/domains(if there is such a thing).

In any case, I’m hoping that this can be a decent OOTB method for protecting Plone’s self-registration setting.
