delegate digest authentication to apache / lighttpd / squid
Status: closed (invalid)
|Reported by:||email@example.com||Assigned to:||somebody|
Apache already has mod_digest (and mod_ldap), and IMHO it is better to delegate security to Apache (rather than re-implement digest in CherryPy). Also, it might be safer to _configure_ security declaratively than code it.
Has anyone deployed CherrPy? behind mod_digest (or mod_ldap), and retrieved the "Authorization-Info" ?
Or, is it a wrong question? I am trying a parallel with MS IIS , where is possible to set Directory Security to "Windows Integrated". The CGI or ASP pages retrieve the "authenticated user" server variable, or headers.
