Always Remember Me
7 And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.
I'm implementing an example of spring security with the remember-me feature based on Persistent Token Approach. Actually i'm using a custom authentication manager how can i activate forever the option remember-me without adding the checkbox remember me on login form(i don't want also to put the checkbox input hidden and activate by default). How can i achieve that?here the spring security java configuration that i made:
I have an AbstractPreAuthenticatedProcessingFilter with a custom authentication manager used to make custom features before authenticating user. how can i use this filter to set the remember me option to true ?
I implement a full example that resolves the problem.Enabling the remember me feature without adding the input checkbox on login form and Using the persistent token approach to save token on database while authentication.
There is one thing that you need to be careful with when it comes to remember me cookies. If a bad user somehow got access to my account - like they stole my password - then they could, of course, log in. Normally, that sucks... but as soon as I find out, I could change my password, which will log them out.
Fortunately, in the new authenticator system, there's a really cool way to avoid this. In security.yaml, below remember_me, add a new option called signature_properties set to an array with password inside:
Let me explain. When Symfony creates the remember me cookie, it creates a "signature" that proves that this cookie is valid. Thanks to this config, it will now fetch the password property off of our User and include that in the signature. Then, when that cookie is used to authenticate, Symfony will re-create the signature using the password of the User that's currently in the database and make sure the two signatures match. So if the password in the database is different than the password that was used to originally create the cookie... the signature match will fail!
Now, if we are the bad user, the next time we come back to the site... suddenly we're logged out! Blast! And I would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids! The remember me cookie is there... but it's not working. I love this feature.
Yes, good catch! The password was added by default in a security patch - -2021-41268-remember-me-cookie-persistance-after-password-changes - because it's actually SUPER important for the user to be logged out when the password changes. So now, that part is done for you nicely :).
I was curious about remember me's being invalidated on password change with the old auth system. Appears they are - I believe this is because of the refresh user process and the AbstractToken::hasUserChanged() method. I assume this would be the same with the new authenticator but using signature_properties, it would "fail earlier" (before authentication). Am I off-base here?
The old system invalidates the remember me cookies when the password changed? Are you positive about that? It's possible... but it's not what I would have expected. Yes, you're totally correct that the hasUserChanged() would "fail" when the user's password changes. That should invalidate the User object that's stored in the session... so it should have basically the same effect as deleting the "session" cookie. But then, the "remember me" system would take over: it would read the cookie, grab the "user identifier" from that, query for a refresh user, authenticate them and then store that new user in the session.
So let me know if you're seeing something different - that would be very interesting. I did test the new system for this behavior while I recorded (I changed the user's password BEFORE adding signature_properties and the result was that the user was still logged in, but suddenly via the remember me cookie instead of the original "token"). But, if you get a different result, we should look deeper :).
Question Number 1: What great event turned around the life of Alma the Younger? If you responded that an angel of God came down and called Alma to repentance, I would give you partial credit. Certainly that was part of the equation. But I think the story more importantly illustrates the power of remembering the Savior and thinking of Him than it illustrates the ability of angels to call us to repentance.
As I was thus racked with torment, while I was harrowed up by the memory of my many sins, behold, I remembered also to have heard my father prophesy unto the people concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God, to atone for the sins of the world.
In our day we suffer from the same busy lifestyle and materialism that afflicted the Zoramites, but we also have added a variety of additional distractions that prevent us from remembering and thinking about the Savior. Our minds are stuffed with the thoughts of pop culture, entertainment, advertising, hobbies, sports, and other trivial concerns that easily crowd out those vital thoughts we should be having of the Savior.
One blessing of remembering Him is an increased sense of gratitude. It was simply the fact that he remembered that made one cleansed leper so very different from the other nine.17 The grateful leper remembered and therefore focused his thoughts on the giver of the gift rather than on the gift itself. It is impossible to contemplate the Atonement without a profound sense of gratitude and thanksgiving. Gratitude is the fertile soil from which so many other important virtues sprout.
Another blessing of remembering Him is that it recalls to us His example as the kind of person we ought to be. Here in the Harris Fine Arts Center, students are instructed in the techniques of art and painting. This is not one of my skills. A few years ago I was with my family in the Teton Mountains, and our car was parked on the highway because of road construction. I noticed an artist at the side of the road. She was painting the magnificent mountain scene. I had some time to observe her technique. As a nonartist I was impressed at how much time the artist spent looking up at the vista as opposed to the time she actually spent painting on the canvas. In order to get it right, she spent a tremendous amount of time studying, contemplating, and mentally processing the scene she was painting.
One more analogy: I was recently in a toy store and saw a jigsaw puzzle that boasted of having 2,000 pieces. I am sure there are trained counselors and therapists who can help people who like to put such things together. I am not a huge fan of jigsaw puzzles, but I remember doing a few as a child, usually at Christmastime with cousins. From those experiences I know that it is extremely difficult to put a puzzle together if you do not have the picture that is on the cover of the box. Similarly, it is challenging to put this earthly experience together if we do not frequently look at what the completed picture ought to look like. The life and perfect example of the Savior provides this picture. I suggest you refer to it frequently.
When we got home, John found our little envelope of emergency cash, and he paid the family to get their car repaired. They happily left. I was astonished. Then John gathered our family together. He was somewhat apologetic as he explained his actions. I know this accident was not our fault, but as I was negotiating with this family, the only thought in my head was that only a little over an hour ago I had covenanted with Heavenly Father to always act as He would. I knew that if He were standing in my position, He would have had compassion on this family and would have done all He could to help them.26
I teach a substance abuse class here at BYU, and my students are required to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. I always read with interest their reports of that experience. The following quote is typical:
As my mind caught hold upon this thought, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet the most beautiful spirit erased all the enmity and feelings of revenge that had infected my soul. All those negative feelings were completely gone. Brothers and sisters, I testify that when we remember the Savior, good things happen.
We must know Christ better than we know him; we must remember him more often than we remember him; we must serve him more valiantly than we serve him. Then we will drink water springing up unto eternal life and will eat the bread of life.30
The prophet Alma taught that out of simple things great things come to pass.31 Remembering the Savior and thinking about Him are certainly simple things, but I testify they bring mighty changes in our lives. Thinking of the Savior fills us with gratitude. It more powerfully increases the ability of the Holy Spirit to direct our lives. It helps us repent and change our behavior; it opens our eyes to the needs of others; and it helps us resist temptation. I testify that each of us has the ability to train and discipline our minds to more frequently remember Him.
Also, excessive fatigue during the daytime may be a sign of sleep issues that require a person to seek help. If at any point your dreams, or remembering your dreams, is causing you stress or anxiety, you should consider speaking with a doctor.
Everyone remembers a great teacher but what does it mean to be great? It transcends academic achievements and results, surely: top grades in examinations are ultimately the end goal in education but the great teacher does this and more. 041b061a72
