Subject username and password with basic auth
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 19:33:28 GMT
Hello developers,

I'm currently developing a software which is receiving requests via http
where username and password are transmitted via HTTP (basic)
authentication (as base64 encoded string in the HTTP request header).
The other parameters are transmitted as a GET request, thus encoded into
the URL of the request.

If have (yet) not found any way to retrieve the password in my perl
code. The username is set in the REQUEST_USER environment variable, but
I did not find out, wherer I can access the password. Is this possible?

Or would it be possible if I code a custom Auth Handler (as shown in the
mod_perl manual) and then store the password somewhere where I can
access it from my (Emb)perl code?
