Personally, unless security is of absolutely no concern, I wouldn't suggest using cookies. Here's an example of what I've done in the past, from a previous node entitled Administration Ignorance

While I'd be the first to admit that this method is a bit more complicated than cookies, it has enough advantages that I think it is probably worth the little bit of extra programming.

    I just read your referenced node, and I must say, bravo. That seems a pretty simple and very complete way of authenticating some one. I'm going to try that on my next site. Thanks.

    Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
