    Identifying and authentication of a user is very common and useful part of every web appilication, In CakePHP AuthComponent provides a way to secure user's password in encrypt manner and allow user to authenticate objects as well.

    AppModel:

    
    <?php 
    	App::uses('AppModel', 'Model');
    	App::uses('BlowfishPasswordHasher', 'Controller/Component/Auth');
    ?>

    AppController:

    <?php
    App::uses('Controller', 'Controller');
    
    class AppController extends Controller {
    	public $components  = array('Session','Auth' => array(
                'loginRedirect' => array(
                    'controller' => 'projects',
                    'action' => 'index'
                ),
                'logoutRedirect' => array(
                    'controller' => 'projects',
                    'action' => 'index'
                ),
                'authenticate' => array(
                    'Form' => array(
                        'passwordHasher' => 'Blowfish',
                        'fields' => array('username' => 'email')
                    )
                ),
            ));
    	 public function beforeFilter() {
            parent::beforeFilter();
            $this->Auth->allow('registration','logout','getCities','getStates');	// Allow users to register and logout.
    
        }

    <?php
    App::uses('Controller', 'Controller');
    App::uses('AuthComponent','Controller/Component');
    ?>
