DESCRIPTION ^

This module is Catalyst authentication storage plugin that authenticates based on a URL HTTP HEAD fetch using the supplied credentials. If the fetch succeeds then the authentication succeeds.

LWP::UserAgent is used to fetch the URL which requires authentication, so any authentication method supported by that module can be used.

Remote authentication methods known to work are:-

This is re-implementation of Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Basic::Remote.

CONFIGURATION ^

Configuration is done in the standard Catalyst fashion. All configuration keys are under authentication/http.

The supported keys are:-

auth_url

The URL that is fetched to demonstrate that the supplied credentials work. This can be any URL that LWP::UserAgent will support and that will support a HEAD method. This item must be supplied.

keep_alive

A boolean value that sets whether keep alive is used on the URL fetch. This must be set for NTLM authentication - and the ntlm configuration key forces it to be set.

domain

An optional domain value for authentication. If set the presented username for authentication has this domain prepended to it - this is really of use only for NTLM authentication mode.

ntlm

A boolean value that should be set if NTLM authentication is required. If this is set then domain must be set and keep_alive is forced on.

EXTENDED METHODS ^

setup

Checks the configuration information and sets up the default_auth_store. This method is not intended to be called directly by user code.
