Yup, sounds like a cookie to me. You'll probably store the username and some
form of encrypted password in the cookie. When accessing your login page, or
maybe every page of your site that differs based on the logged-in user, you'll
check if logged in; if not, you'll check if this remember-me cookie exists. If
it does, you'll hand that information off to the login process and log them in.
