Hello all!

 

Hoping someone here could give some guidance or what to look up on how to do this little project.

 

I am wanting to set up a webpage that has a box to enter the password and once the password is entered it gives a link, The catch is that there is hundreds of passwords and hundreds of links. up to 30 different passwords could open 1 link. 

 

So what should i look up to teach myself?

I would look into JWT (JSON Web Tokens) for generating unique tokens the user can use with a link. The reason to use these is they are easy to invalidate if there is a breach of any kind. You can also ended session lifetimes and other information.
