NAME ^

Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Credential::HTTP - DEPRECATED HTTP Basic authentication for Catlayst.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Catalyst qw/
        Authentication
        Authentication::Store::Moose
        Authentication::Store::Elk
        Authentication::Credential::HTTP::Proxy
    /;

    $c->config->{authentication}{http_proxy}= {
        url  =>'http://elkland.no/auth',
        store => 'Authentication::Store::Moose'
    };
    
    sub foo : Local { 
        my ( $self, $c ) = @_;

        $c->authorization_required( realm => "foo" ); # named after the status code ;-)

        # either user gets authenticated or 401 is sent

        do_stuff();
    }

    # with ACL plugin
    __PACKAGE__->deny_access_unless("/path", sub { $_[0]->authenticate_http });

    sub end : Private {
        my ( $self, $c ) = @_;

        $c->authorization_required_response( realm => "foo" );
        $c->error(0);
    }

DEPRECATED ^

This module is deprecated by Catalyst::Authentication::HTTP::proxy, please do not use this code in new applications.

DESCRIPTION ^

This moduule lets you use HTTP Proxy authentication with Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication.

Currently this module only supports the Basic scheme, but upon request Digest will also be added. Patches welcome!

CONFIG ^

This module reads config from $c->config->{authentication}{http_proxy}. The following settings are supported:

url

Required. A url protected with basic authentication to authenticate against.

store

To specify what store to use. will use the default store if not set.

METHODS ^

authorization_required

Tries to authenticate_http_proxy, and if that fails calls authorization_required_response and detaches the current action call stack.

authenticate_http_proxy

Looks inside $c->request->headers and processes the basic (badly named) authorization header. Then authenticates this against the provided url.

authorization_required_response

Sets $c->response to the correct status code, and adds the correct header to demand authentication data from the user agent.
