Hi Jesse,
 what I do is (blatantly taken from CatalystX::SimpleLogin source)
something like

 # in Login controller, and action login

 my $parms =3D $c->request->body_parameters;

 if ($c->authenticate({ username =3D> $parms->{username},
                                   password =3D> $parms->{password}} )) {
             $c->extend_session_expires(999999999999) if
$c->request->address =3D~ m/^192\.168/g; #or whatever way to determine local
