Better Sessions

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 25/10/2007 cookies and sessions ip security session hijack

Sessions have inherent problems, as most developers know. A session ID can be easily hijacked, and that can cause major problems with security in a website. There are ways around this - in PHP you can set up sessions so that the session ID can only be transmitted using cookies, but then you prevent those without cookies from logging in. One way around this problem is to tie your session ids to the user's IP address.
