Sql authentication | drupal.org

Sql authentication is potentially useful to connect to external databases and retrieve records. Could be useful for connecting to the monocot checklist and herbarium catalogue – I’d much rather connect to these using an API though.

SQL authentication is a module that uses the external authentication methods in Drupal to connect to any other database.

Whether that is a PHPbb MySQL database, or another drupal site in postgresql does not really matter. It is fully configurable and easy to use. Multiple hashing algorythms are supported too, configurable in the settings interface.

Its user-end system is similar to the drupalID, with one difference: your data will not go unencrypted over the big bad web.
