Subject Passing passwords to CGI
Date Wed, 04 Aug 1999 10:08:19 GMT
Hi all,

I have the need for a CGI program to know the username and password the
user logged in with, so that I can use this info to bind to an LDAP
server. I know that the username is passed in the environment, but what
about the password? Can Apache do this?

If not, are there security issues with passing the password in the
environment? Anyone know of any patches so that Apache can do this?

Is there a "correct" way of doing this?
