There many approach to this, the first one that come to mind is mod-rewrite parsing the request
and apply some processing if there is a match..
Where do you store credentials? LDAP?
Where is the security boundary in your design?
Hope this helps

Subject: Apache filters?

Hi all,
I am using Tomcat to serve up my image content. I was considering moving this static content
to Apache itself but I'm stuck on how to do dynamic authorisation of a directory in Apache.
In Tomcat I can restrict access to the images directory by adding a filter and in this filter
dynamically checking for a valid security pin in the url. But how would I do such a thing
in Apache? I know Apache can do it based on user or requesting machine but this is more dynamic.
Cheers alot
