I'd like to see what you've written if you want to share it.

When deciding on authentication methods you might look into 'cookie theft' .
When doing connection based authentication using cookies on older browsers
it makes it pretty difficult to ensure malicious people are kept out. I
couldn't come up with a way to do it other than just making the
authentication token expire so quickly that even if they got the cookie by
the time they tried to use it the id would have expired.
