This episode takes you on a grand tour of all of the things the Session Authentication gives you out of the box, from registration, login, email activation, email 2FA, and more.
This video takes a look at how you can do Session-based authentication and authorization on your controllers using Controller Filters and Route Filters.

In this episode, we determine which groups and permissions our Playground needs and configure the app to use them.
Here's a quick video where I wanted to highlight a few pages in the docs that will help you get up and running with Shield as fast as possible.
This session takes a look into the CodeIgniter Settings library that Shield uses. We look at what it is, how it works, and how to use it.
This third video in the Master CodeIgniter Shield in-progress course takes a look at the config file that defines groups and permissions.
This is part 2 of the in-progress course, Mastering Shield, that helps you understand CodeIgniter's authentication/authorization library, Shield, and learn to implement it in your own projects.
