Subject Re: Set AuthName to prompt for sequential passwords
Date Tue, 21 Dec 2010 04:14:50 GMT
Thank you so much for the insight. Your thoughts are very
valuable. I'll be digging into the CookieAuth module to see what I can
see. After I look at it just a bit, it may be that I can just use
CookieAuth as it is, or with minor tweaks and a big authentication
routine. It would deny authentication, but set a different cookie after
"phase 1"; and grant authentication with a good "phase 1" cookie and
proper "phase 2" responses.

You'll hear from me again, as I find other questions, or if a miracle
happens and I complete the project and get something that works.

Thank you again!
