recaptcha repoze.who plugin implementation

Project description

repoze.who.recaptcha implements server side of the recaptcha API. This IAuthenticator plugin examines environment for recaptcha form values and requests verification.

repoze.who.recaptcha works based on form_handler condition:

if form_handler parameter is not given, always perform authentication.

if form_handler parameter is given, perform authentication only when one of the form_handler values (separated by space) matches the absolute URL where the form is processed.

If the validation succeeds, no action is taken. Otherwise error is passed to environ['repoze.who.error'] and HTTPUnauthorzied(401) is triggered.

Public Mercurial repo is avaliable at

# sample .ini configuration

use = repoze.who.plugins.captcha:make_authentication_plugin
private_key = si3di5ndlam3x44d
form_handler = /process /login /admin
