Subject PUT authoring
Date Mon, 17 Jun 1996 10:48:23 GMT

Just a thought... is there a way to use "skey" to make authoring
secure? If apache could send back a challenge, the user can (outside
of the browser) generate the correct one-time-password and send that along
with the PUT. No unique one-time-password and the PUT is rejected... much
simpler than anything I've seen discussed so far.

It'd take some work to get apache ready for this, but the end result
is much cleaner.

A netscape skey 'plug-in' could make this very slick.
