Class ControllerAuthorize

An authorization adapter for AuthComponent. Provides the ability to authorize using a controller callback. Your controller's isAuthorized() method should return a boolean to indicate whether or not the user is authorized.

public function isAuthorized($user)
 {
     if ($this->request->getParam('admin')) {
         return $user['role'] === 'admin';
     }
     return !empty($user);
 }

The above is simple implementation that would only authorize users of the 'admin' role to access admin routing.
