Spin auth

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation,

'spin_auth' is an authentication wrapper. It can be used by other mod_spin applications to authenticate users specified in a traditional Apache manner, but without employing dangerously breakable basic authentication. It also lets non-encrypted applications temporarily switch to SSL/TLS for authentication only.
