NAME ^

Apache::AuthenPasswdSrv - mod_perl Authen Handler

SYNOPSIS ^

  PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthenPasswdSrv->handler()

REQUIRES ^

Perl5.004_04, mod_perl 1.15

DESCRIPTION ^

Apache::AuthenPasswdSrv is a mod_perl Authentication handler that checks a users credentials against a domain socket server. The included server, passwd_srv.pl, checks a username and password against an NIS database using Net::NIS and ypmatch. This release is very alpha. The server protocol is not documented and transaction format will change. The system has been running under light load at my office for about a month now, and no problems are know with the current release.

TODO ^

Module Configuration

Break out module configuration into PerlSetVar statements.

NIS Server Configuration

Figure out MakeMaker enough to auto-configure paths in password server.

Documentation

Write up Server Protocol documentation. Write a better POD file for the module.

Module/Server Structure

Build class structure for password service client. Add security so client/server can be used with standard IP sockets. Build class structure for server. Build other example servers.
