NAME ^

Authen::Ticket - Perl extension for implementing ticket authentication

SYNOPSIS ^

  PerlHandler Authen::Ticket

or

  PerlAccessHandler Authen::Ticket
  ErrorDocument     403  http://ticket.tamu.edu/TicketMaster/

DESCRIPTION ^

Authen::Ticket provides the mod_perl framework for using the Authen::Ticket::Server and Authen::Ticket::Client classes as Apache handlers.

To create custom handlers, derive a class (My::Authen) from Authen::Ticket:

  package My::Authen;
  use vars (qw/@ISA/);
  @ISA = (qw/Authen::Ticket/);

In addition to My::Authen, the server and client classes are also required:

  package My::Authen::Server;
  use vars (qw/@ISA/);
  @ISA = (qw/Authen::Ticket::Server/);

  sub authenticate {
    my($self, $u) = @_;
    my $t = { };

    # do stuff
    return $t;   # hash ref to ticket contents
  }

  package My::Authen::Client;
  use vars (qw/@ISA/);
  @ISA = (qw/Authen::Ticket::Client/);

See the documentation for each of Authen::Ticket::Server and Authen::Ticket::Client for a list of methods that may be implemented.
