    Default Any PHP gurus out there?

    I am loading a php page in an alpha grid from my iis server with php for windows. I would like to send something from alpha so that I don't have to have a login page yet keep the page secure. Can anyone please give me a boost with this?

    Some of the ways that i could think of Alpha could talk to php are not very secure eg.
    • through a variable in the url
    • through storing some values in a file on the webroot then having php read it

    this alternatives aren't secure at all although you could make your own encryption algorithm that you can later decrypt in php. The algorithm should take something like the date into account so the encrypted string would not be always the same, but again this wouldn't be 100% secure either (although nothing is 100% secure).
    Cheers

    Thank you for the ideas Mauricio. I am just having a block on this one. Perhaps it will go away after some time.
