NAME ^

POE::Component::Server::HTTPServer::BasicAuthenHandler - Basic HTTP Basic Authentication

SYNOPSIS ^

    use POE::Component::Server::HTTPServer;
    
    my $server = POE::Component::Server::HTTPServer->new();
    $server->handlers( [
        '/protected' => new_handler( 'BasicAuthenHandler', 'realm' ),
        '/protected' => MyAuthorizationHandler->new(),
        '/protected' => new_handler( 'StaticHandler', './secretdox' ),
    ] );

DESCRIPTION ^

BasicAuthenHandler performs the necessary processing on requests to support HTTP Basic authentication. If the user-agent making the request supplies authentication information (via the WWW-Authenticate header), this handler extracts the supplied user name and password and sets the context attributes basic_username and basic_password respectively. If no authentication is given, the handler generates and returns an appropriate 403 Unauthorized response.

Note that this handler performs authentication only, it does not perform authorization. You will need to supply logic to check the user name and password for your own purposes.
