ColdFusion provides a set of tags and functions for creating login pages and generally enforcing rules about which of your application’s pages can be used by whom. The tags are <cflogin>, <cfloginuser>, and <cflogout>. For basic web applications, the framework provides the same kind of user experience as Session-Based security. The main purpose of the framework is to make it easier to secure more advanced applications that make use of ColdFusion Components and Flash Remoting.
For details and examples, see the “Using ColdFusion’s <cflogin> Framework,” below.
