Locked Area is a highly sophisticated password protection and membership management system written in Perl. This project has been designed to be as secure as possible while it still runs hands-free with no input from the webmaster needed.

Locked Area uses Apache's .htaccess and .htpasswd along with DES randomised salt or MD5 encryption of passwords for increased security. It also includes a member's database that lets the administrator maintain a mailing list along with the member's area.

Locked Area includes tools to allow your member's to modify their account information, change their password, remove their account or request a new random password. Included in the administration panel is a powerful member's area statistics system which lets the administrator see which users are logging in most often and view the top IP addresses, web browsers and referrers amongst others.
