Subject mod_authn_alias attempt (was Re: Multiple AAA Providers)
Date Tue, 17 May 2005 16:27:14 GMT
   Here is an attempt at providing this functionality through a separate module called mod_authn_alias.
 It follows the syntax outlined in the previous message thread  http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=apache-httpd-dev&m=110995646219340&w=2
.  However, I have run into a road block.  In order to make this work, mod_authn_alias needs
to be able to retrieve the aliased per_dir configuration and merge it into the current per_dir
configuration before calling the real check_password() provider function.  I'm just not sure
how to make this happen given the amount of information that mod_authn_alias has at the point
when the merge_per_dir_config needs to happen.  

Any ideas?

Brad

Has there been any further motion on the multiple AAA provider issue in 2.1?

Our customers really need to be able to directly authenticate against 
multiple LDAPs (again, this is not a failover case -- the contents of 
each LDAP are distinct and non-overlapping).

I *suspect* we're not the only ones who need multiple AAA data sources 
of a single type, especially LDAP.
