HI Adam,

   Thanks for your reply it really helped!

To clarify what I meant by "location based authentication"?
I mean three potential things and any combination of them;
A)  The user could be authenticated base on their location (where they are)
using session cookies or their ip address for implementation.

This one could be useful for blocking requests from locations outside of
your building/neighborhood/state/country exc

B) The location (again either by session cookies or ip address) of the user
in addition to other credentials (ie user id, password) is used to
authenticate the user.

This is the one that most banks use to make them more secure than just a
user id/password?

C) The location (again either by session cookies or ip address) of the user
is used to grant additional roles/privileges to the authenticate user
(however they authenticated).

Cheers and thanks again,
