+    <p>If you have information on your web site that is sensitive
+    or intended for only a small group of people, the techniques in
+    this article will help you make sure that the people that see
+    those pages are the people that you wanted to see them.</p>
+
+    <p>This article covers the "standard" way of protecting parts
+    of your web site that most of you are going to use.</p>
+
+    <note><title>Note:</title>
+    <p>If your data really needs to be secure, consider using
+    <module>mod_ssl</module> in addition to any authentication.</p>
+    </note>
+</section>
+
+<section id="theprerequisites"><title>The Prerequisites</title>
+    <p>The directives discussed in this article will need to go
+    either in your main server configuration file (typically in a
+    <directive module="core" type="section">Directory</directive> section), or
+    in per-directory configuration files (<code>.htaccess</code> files).</p>
+
+    <p>If you plan to use <code>.htaccess</code> files, you will
+    need to have a server configuration that permits putting
+    authentication directives in these files. This is done with the
+    <directive module="core">AllowOverride</directive> directive, which
+    specifies which directives, if any, may be put in per-directory
+    configuration files.</p>
+
+    <p>Since we're talking here about authentication, you will need
+    an <directive module="core">AllowOverride</directive> directive like the
+    following:</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+AllowOverride AuthConfig
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>Or, if you are just going to put the directives directly in
+    your main server configuration file, you will of course need to
+    have write permission to that file.</p>
+
+    <p>And you'll need to know a little bit about the directory
+    structure of your server, in order to know where some files are
+    kept. This should not be terribly difficult, and I'll try to
+    make this clear when we come to that point.</p>
+
+    <p>You will also need to make sure that the modules
+    <module>mod_authn_core</module> and <module>mod_authz_core</module>
+    have either been built into the httpd binary or loaded by the
+    httpd.conf configuration file. Both of these modules provide core
+    directives and functionality that are critical to the configuration
+    and use of authentication and authorization in the web server.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="gettingitworking"><title>Getting it working</title>
+    <p>Here's the basics of password protecting a directory on your
+    server.</p>
+
+    <p>First, you need to create a password file. Exactly how you do
+    this will vary depending on what authentication provider you have
+    chosen. More on that later. To start with, we'll use a text password
+    file.</p>
+
+    <p>This file should be
+    placed somewhere not accessible from the web. This is so that
+    folks cannot download the password file. For example, if your
+    documents are served out of <code>/usr/local/apache/htdocs</code>, you
+    might want to put the password file(s) in
+    <code>/usr/local/apache/passwd</code>.</p>
+
+    <p>To create the file, use the <program>htpasswd</program> utility
that
+    came with Apache. This will be located in the <code>bin</code> directory
+    of wherever you installed Apache. If you have installed Apache from
+    a third-party package, it may be in your execution path.</p>
+
+    <p>To create the file, type:</p>
+
+    <example>
+      htpasswd -c /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords rbowen
+    </example>
+
+    <p><program>htpasswd</program> will ask you for the password, and
+    then ask you to type it again to confirm it:</p>
+
+    <example>
+      # htpasswd -c /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords rbowen<br />
+      New password: mypassword<br />
+      Re-type new password: mypassword<br />
+      Adding password for user rbowen
+    </example>
+
+    <p>If <program>htpasswd</program> is not in your path, of course
+    you'll have to type the full path to the file to get it to run.
+    With a default installation, it's located at
+    <code>/usr/local/apache2/bin/htpasswd</code></p>
+
+    <p>Next, you'll need to configure the server to request a
+    password and tell the server which users are allowed access.
+    You can do this either by editing the <code>httpd.conf</code>
+    file or using an <code>.htaccess</code> file. For example, if
+    you wish to protect the directory
+    <code>/usr/local/apache/htdocs/secret</code>, you can use the
+    following directives, either placed in the file
+    <code>/usr/local/apache/htdocs/secret/.htaccess</code>, or
+    placed in <code>httpd.conf</code> inside a &lt;Directory
+    "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/secret"&gt; section.</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+AuthType Basic
+AuthName "Restricted Files"
+# (Following line optional)
+AuthBasicProvider file
+AuthUserFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords"
+Require user rbowen
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>Let's examine each of those directives individually. The <directive
+    module="mod_authn_core">AuthType</directive> directive selects
+    that method that is used to authenticate the user. The most
+    common method is <code>Basic</code>, and this is the method
+    implemented by <module>mod_auth_basic</module>. It is important to be aware,
+    however, that Basic authentication sends the password from the client to
+    the server unencrypted. This method should therefore not be used for
+    highly sensitive data, unless accompanied by <module>mod_ssl</module>.
+    Apache supports one other authentication method:
+    <code>AuthType Digest</code>. This method is implemented by <module
+    >mod_auth_digest</module> and was intended to be more secure. This is no
+    longer the case and the connection should be encrypted with <module
+    >mod_ssl</module> instead.</p>
+
+    <p>The <directive module="mod_authn_core">AuthName</directive> directive
sets
+    the <dfn>Realm</dfn> to be used in the authentication. The realm serves
+    two major functions. First, the client often presents this information to
+    the user as part of the password dialog box. Second, it is used by the
+    client to determine what password to send for a given authenticated
+    area.</p>
+
+    <p>So, for example, once a client has authenticated in the
+    <code>"Restricted Files"</code> area, it will automatically
+    retry the same password for any area on the same server that is
+    marked with the <code>"Restricted Files"</code> Realm.
+    Therefore, you can prevent a user from being prompted more than
+    once for a password by letting multiple restricted areas share
+    the same realm. Of course, for security reasons, the client
+    will always need to ask again for the password whenever the
+    hostname of the server changes.</p>
+
+    <p>The <directive
+    module="mod_auth_basic">AuthBasicProvider</directive> is,
+    in this case, optional, since <code>file</code> is the default value
+    for this directive. You'll need to use this directive if you are
+    choosing a different source for authentication, such as
+    <module>mod_authn_dbm</module> or <module>mod_authn_dbd</module>.</p>
+
+    <p>The <directive module="mod_authn_file">AuthUserFile</directive>
+    directive sets the path to the password file that we just
+    created with <program>htpasswd</program>. If you have a large number
+    of users, it can be quite slow to search through a plain text
+    file to authenticate the user on each request. Apache also has
+    the ability to store user information in fast database files.
+    The <module>mod_authn_dbm</module> module provides the <directive
+    module="mod_authn_dbm">AuthDBMUserFile</directive> directive. These
+    files can be created and manipulated with the <program>
+    dbmmanage</program> and <program>htdbm</program> programs. Many
+    other types of authentication options are available from third
+    party modules in the <a
+    href="http://modules.apache.org/">Apache Modules
+    Database</a>.</p>
+
+    <p>Finally, the <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive>
+    directive provides the authorization part of the process by
+    setting the user that is allowed to access this region of the
+    server. In the next section, we discuss various ways to use the
+    <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive> directive.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="lettingmorethanonepersonin"><title>Letting more than one
+person in</title>
+    <p>The directives above only let one person (specifically
+    someone with a username of <code>rbowen</code>) into the
+    directory. In most cases, you'll want to let more than one
+    person in. This is where the <directive module="mod_authz_groupfile"
+    >AuthGroupFile</directive> comes in.</p>
+
+    <p>If you want to let more than one person in, you'll need to
+    create a group file that associates group names with a list of
+    users in that group. The format of this file is pretty simple,
+    and you can create it with your favorite editor. The contents
+    of the file will look like this:</p>
+
+   <example>
+     GroupName: rbowen dpitts sungo rshersey
+   </example>
+
+    <p>That's just a list of the members of the group in a long
+    line separated by spaces.</p>
+
+    <p>To add a user to your already existing password file,
+    type:</p>
+
+    <example>
+      htpasswd /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords dpitts
+    </example>
+
+    <p>You'll get the same response as before, but it will be
+    appended to the existing file, rather than creating a new file.
+    (It's the <code>-c</code> that makes it create a new password
+    file).</p>
+
+    <p>Now, you need to modify your <code>.htaccess</code> file to
+    look like the following:</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+AuthType Basic
+AuthName "By Invitation Only"
+# Optional line:
+AuthBasicProvider file
+AuthUserFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords"
+AuthGroupFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/groups"
+Require group GroupName
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>Now, anyone that is listed in the group <code>GroupName</code>,
+    and has an entry in the <code>password</code> file, will be let in, if
+    they type the correct password.</p>
+
+    <p>There's another way to let multiple users in that is less
+    specific. Rather than creating a group file, you can just use
+    the following directive:</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+Require valid-user
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>Using that rather than the <code>Require user rbowen</code>
+    line will allow anyone in that is listed in the password file,
+    and who correctly enters their password. You can even emulate
+    the group behavior here, by just keeping a separate password
+    file for each group. The advantage of this approach is that
+    Apache only has to check one file, rather than two. The
+    disadvantage is that you have to maintain a bunch of password
+    files, and remember to reference the right one in the
+    <directive module="mod_authn_file">AuthUserFile</directive> directive.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="possibleproblems"><title>Possible problems</title>
+    <p>Because of the way that Basic authentication is specified,
+    your username and password must be verified every time you
+    request a document from the server. This is even if you're
+    reloading the same page, and for every image on the page (if
+    they come from a protected directory). As you can imagine, this
+    slows things down a little. The amount that it slows things
+    down is proportional to the size of the password file, because
+    it has to open up that file, and go down the list of users
+    until it gets to your name. And it has to do this every time a
+    page is loaded.</p>
+
+    <p>A consequence of this is that there's a practical limit to
+    how many users you can put in one password file. This limit
+    will vary depending on the performance of your particular
+    server machine, but you can expect to see slowdowns once you
+    get above a few hundred entries, and may wish to consider a
+    different authentication method at that time.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="dbmdbd"><title>Alternate password storage</title>
+
+    <p>Because storing passwords in plain text files has the above
+    problems, you may wish to store your passwords somewhere else, such
+    as in a database.</p>
+
+    <p><module>mod_authn_dbm</module> and <module>mod_authn_dbd</module>
are two
+    modules which make this possible. Rather than selecting <code><directive
+    module="mod_auth_basic">AuthBasicProvider</directive> file</code>, instead
+    you can choose <code>dbm</code> or <code>dbd</code> as your storage
+    format.</p>
+
+    <p>To select a dbm file rather than a text file, for example:</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+&lt;Directory "/www/docs/private"&gt;
+    AuthName "Private"
+    AuthType Basic
+    AuthBasicProvider dbm
+    AuthDBMUserFile "/www/passwords/passwd.dbm"
+    Require valid-user
+&lt;/Directory&gt;
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>Other options are available. Consult the
+    <module>mod_authn_dbm</module> documentation for more details.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="multprovider"><title>Using multiple providers</title>
+
+    <p>With the introduction of the new provider based authentication and
+    authorization architecture, you are no longer locked into a single
+    authentication or authorization method. In fact any number of the
+    providers can be mixed and matched to provide you with exactly the
+    scheme that meets your needs. In the following example, both the
+    file and LDAP based authentication providers are being used.</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+&lt;Directory "/www/docs/private"&gt;
+    AuthName "Private"
+    AuthType Basic
+    AuthBasicProvider file ldap
+    AuthUserFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords"
+    AuthLDAPURL ldap://ldaphost/o=yourorg
+    Require valid-user
+&lt;/Directory&gt;
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>In this example the file provider will attempt to authenticate
+    the user first. If it is unable to authenticate the user, the LDAP
+    provider will be called. This allows the scope of authentication
+    to be broadened if your organization implements more than
+    one type of authentication store. Other authentication and authorization
+    scenarios may include mixing one type of authentication with a
+    different type of authorization. For example, authenticating against
+    a password file yet authorizing against an LDAP directory.</p>
+
+    <p>Just as multiple authentication providers can be implemented, multiple
+    authorization methods can also be used. In this example both file group
+    authorization as well as LDAP group authorization is being used.</p>
+
+    <highlight language="config">
+&lt;Directory "/www/docs/private"&gt;
+    AuthName "Private"
+    AuthType Basic
+    AuthBasicProvider file
+    AuthUserFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords"
+    AuthLDAPURL ldap://ldaphost/o=yourorg
+    AuthGroupFile "/usr/local/apache/passwd/groups"
+    Require group GroupName
+    Require ldap-group cn=mygroup,o=yourorg
+&lt;/Directory&gt;
+    </highlight>
+
+    <p>To take authorization a little further, authorization container
+    directives such as
+    <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAll</directive>
+    and
+    <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAny</directive>
+    allow logic to be applied so that the order in which authorization
+    is handled can be completely controlled through the configuration.
+    See <a href="../mod/mod_authz_core.html#logic">Authorization
+    Containers</a> for an example of how they may be applied.</p>
+
+</section>
+
+<section id="beyond"><title>Beyond just authorization</title>
+
+    <p>The way that authorization can be applied is now much more flexible
+    than just a single check against a single data store. Ordering, logic
+    and choosing how authorization will be done is now possible.</p>
+
+    <section id="authandororder"><title>Applying logic and ordering</title>
+        <p>Controlling how and in what order authorization will be applied
+        has been a bit of a mystery in the past. In Apache 2.2 a provider-based
+        authentication mechanism was introduced to decouple the actual
+        authentication process from authorization and supporting functionality.
+        One of the side benefits was that authentication providers could be
+        configured and called in a specific order which didn't depend on the
+        load order of the auth module itself. This same provider based mechanism
+        has been brought forward into authorization as well. What this means is
+        that the <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive> directive
+        not only specifies which authorization methods should be used, it also
+        specifies the order in which they are called. Multiple authorization
+        methods are called in the same order in which the
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive> directives
+        appear in the configuration.</p>
+
+        <p>With the introduction of authorization container directives
+        such as
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAll</directive>
+        and
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAny</directive>,
+        the configuration also has control over when the
+        authorization methods are called and what criteria determines when
+        access is granted.  See
+        <a href="../mod/mod_authz_core.html#logic">Authorization Containers</a>
+        for an example of how they may be used to express complex
+        authorization logic.</p>
+
+        <p>By default all
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive>
+        directives are handled as though contained within a
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAny</directive>
+        container directive.  In other words, if
+        any of the specified authorization methods succeed, then authorization
+        is granted.</p>
+
+    </section>
+
+    <section id="reqaccessctrl"><title>Using authorization providers for access
control</title>
+        <p>Authentication by username and password is only part of the
+        story. Frequently you want to let people in based on something
+        other than who they are. Something such as where they are
+        coming from.</p>
+
+        <p>The authorization providers <code>all</code>,
+        <code>env</code>, <code>host</code> and <code>ip</code>
let you
+        allow or deny access based on other host based criteria such as
+        host name or ip address of the machine requesting a
+        document.</p>
+
+        <p>The usage of these providers is specified through the
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive> directive.
+        This directive registers the authorization providers
+        that will be called during the authorization stage of the request
+        processing. For example:</p>
+
+        <highlight language="config">
+Require ip <var>address</var>
+        </highlight>
+
+        <p>where <var>address</var> is an IP address (or a partial IP
+        address) or:</p>
+
+        <highlight language="config">
+Require host <var>domain_name</var>
+        </highlight>
+
+        <p>where <var>domain_name</var> is a fully qualified domain name
+        (or a partial domain name); you may provide multiple addresses or
+        domain names, if desired.</p>
+
+        <p>For example, if you have someone spamming your message
+        board, and you want to keep them out, you could do the
+        following:</p>
+
+        <highlight language="config">
+&lt;RequireAll&gt;
+    Require all granted
+    Require not ip 10.252.46.165
+&lt;/RequireAll&gt;
+        </highlight>
+
+        <p>Visitors coming from that address will not be able to see
+        the content covered by this directive. If, instead, you have a
+        machine name, rather than an IP address, you can use that.</p>
+
+        <highlight language="config">
+&lt;RequireAll&gt;
+    Require all granted
+    Require not host host.example.com
+&lt;/RequireAll&gt;
+        </highlight>
+
+        <p>And, if you'd like to block access from an entire domain,
+        you can specify just part of an address or domain name:</p>
+
+        <highlight language="config">
+&lt;RequireAll&gt;
+    Require all granted
+    Require not ip 192.168.205
+    Require not host phishers.example.com moreidiots.example
+    Require not host ke
+&lt;/RequireAll&gt;
+        </highlight>
+
+        <p>Using <directive module="mod_authz_core" type="section">RequireAll</directive>
+        with multiple <directive module="mod_authz_core"
+        type="section">Require</directive> directives, each negated with <code>not</code>,
+        will only allow access, if all of negated conditions are true. In other words,
+        access will be blocked, if any of the negated conditions fails.</p>

+    <section id="filesystem"><title>Access Control backwards compatibility</title>
+        <p>One of the side effects of adopting a provider based mechanism for
+        authentication is that the previous access control directives
+        <directive module="mod_access_compat">Order</directive>,
+        <directive module="mod_access_compat">Allow</directive>,
+        <directive module="mod_access_compat">Deny</directive> and
+        <directive module="mod_access_compat">Satisfy</directive> are no longer
needed.
+        However to provide backwards compatibility for older configurations, these
+        directives have been moved to the <module>mod_access_compat</module>
module.</p>
+
+        <note type="warning"><title>Note</title>
+        <p>The directives provided by <module>mod_access_compat</module>
have
+        been deprecated by <module>mod_authz_host</module>.
+        Mixing old directives like <directive
+        module="mod_access_compat">Order</directive>, <directive
+        module="mod_access_compat">Allow</directive> or <directive
+        module="mod_access_compat">Deny</directive> with new ones like
+        <directive module="mod_authz_core">Require</directive> is technically
possible
+        but discouraged. The <module>mod_access_compat</module> module was created
to support
+        configurations containing only old directives to facilitate the 2.4 upgrade.

+<section id="socache"><title>Authentication Caching</title>
+    <p>There may be times when authentication puts an unacceptable load
+    on a provider or on your network.  This is most likely to affect users
+    of <module>mod_authn_dbd</module> (or third-party/custom providers).
+    To deal with this, HTTPD 2.3/2.4 introduces a new caching provider
+    <module>mod_authn_socache</module> to cache credentials and reduce
+    the load on the origin provider(s).</p>
+    <p>This may offer a substantial performance boost to some users.</p>
+</section>
+
+<section id="moreinformation"><title>More information</title>
+    <p>You should also read the documentation for
+    <module>mod_auth_basic</module> and <module>mod_authz_host</module>
+    which contain some more information about how this all works.  The
+    directive <directive type="section"
+    module="mod_authn_core">AuthnProviderAlias</directive> can also help
+    in simplifying certain authentication configurations.</p>
+
+    <p>The various ciphers supported by Apache for authentication data are
+    explained in <a href="../misc/password_encryptions.html">Password
+    Encryptions</a>.</p>
