Subject Re: authentication algorithm
Date Mon, 10 Jul 1995 15:14:28 GMT

A generic way to do this would be to allow a routine/program
to be configured to handle authentication.

Pass it arguments of "name" and "password". If it returns 1 then authentication
was succesful, 0 means it failed.
One could then have any authentication system imaginable, and even have 
different systems for different regions of the server based on 
config/.htaccess information.

This is my first trip into authentication territory, so be gentle if
any of this already exists etc  :-)
