Introduction to my module
My project for Drupal during Google Summer of Code 2015 is to create a Drupal 8 module for a protocol called Hawk. Hawk allows the users to identify themselves and provide an alternative to the standard cookie-based authentication that takes place by browsers. It is mainly meant to be used alongside the REST module, however there are no hard restrictions. Another developer or user can use it as they please. The module itself identifies the user amongst other things such as handling special Hawk end points and header values.
