What can this extension do?[edit]

This extension adds support for the swekey authentication USB key. When this extension is enabled any swekey owner can choose to secure its login with his swekey. Once secured, the user won't be able to login without his swekey plugged in his computer.


This software has been tested in production from MediaWiki 1.16.x to 1.19.1 . It may or may not work with earlier or later versions, but I'm interested in making later versions work, and I'd be happy to make minor changes to make older, unsupported versions work too.
