Authentication methods for Zend Framework XML-RPC server

I have a Zend Framework application whose sole purpose is to serve as an XmlRpc / JSONRPC server.

I've mostly followed the philosophy from this guide for my implementation method. I overrode my Bootstrap's run() method to run a Zend_XmlRpc_Server object and attach the API classes to it.

I want to authenticate any XML-RPC method that gets ran with an "API key" I have stored in a database table. If I had a traditional MVC ZF setup, I would use a controller plugin to automatically take care of the authentication, but I don't have that option. My only solution right now is manually insert code into each API method to check for authentication.

Any thoughts on a more pragmatic way to solve this issue? I'd prefer not to have a bunch of repeated code at the top of every method.

-------------Problems Reply------------

several ways to solve the q

  1. easiest create in Bootstrap Reqest Object manually and check headers

    protected function _initModifiedFrontController()
    $front = $this->getResource('FrontController');

    $request = new Zend_Controller_Request_Http();

    $response = new Zend_Controller_Response_Http();
    $response->setHeader('Content-Type','text/html; charset=UTF-8', true);

    if ($request->isXmlHttpRequest()) {
    $authAdapter = new Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable(

    // ...or configure the instance with setter methods
    $authAdapter = new Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable($dbAdapter);




Read manual Zend_Auth. this is a "zend way".

or u can write custom's easy :)
