Delegates Plone's authentication concerns to a web server

Project description

Authentication modules for web servers, like Apache or IIS, are more plentiful than those for Zope and Plone. WebServerAuth lets you take advantage of these in your site: just configure your web server to authenticate the user and store his or her login name in a request header, and WebServerAuth will convince Plone that that user is logged in. WebServerAuth has been used with LDAP, Active Directory, Kerberos, Shibboleth, Pubcookie, and CoSign and should work with anything else that can put a username into a header.
