Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTTP authentication using HTTP
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 10:06:53 GMT
Hi Anders,

Depending on what the directories contains (eg. your app) I would
nearly be tempted to using OAuth or one of the open authentication
protocols.

I realise that its not the same as Basic authentication where the
authenticated session is generated by another server.

Just my two cents worth!
