DESCRIPTION ^

I wrote this module to work around the lack of DCE support for Solaris x86. DCE authentication in my application is handled using Gradient's DCE plug-in for Netscape Enterprise Server. The request is encrypted using SSL.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ^

The cache code was heavily borrowed from Apache::AuthenDBI by Edmund Mergl <E.Mergl@bawue.de>, but now has been stripped out in favor of the more general solution in Apache::AuthenCache by Jason Bodnar <jason@shakabuku.org>.
