How do you check if the session key is still valid?
For example, if $id=1 and $secret="foo", is
$string="1:ddc5ddfe6f67d74c761dcd6e107ca6aa" a valid session id?
How do you extract the expiry time from $string?
I think you need encryption, not hashing.
use Crypt::Simple; I wrote it to use with cookies.
