Lemonldap::Handlers::Generic  - Perl extension for Lemonldap sso system

    Lemonldap::Handlers::Generic4a2 - Handler for Apache2 Lemonldap SSO


In httpd.conf

  perltranshandler Lemonldap::Handlers::Generic4a2


 Generic4a2 is the central piece of  websso framework .
 This module provides several methods but the principal goal of this is the handler function .
 It can be combined with mod_proxy or mod_rewrite and all other apache's  modules .
 It provides also an built-in  http proxy with LWP .
 see for more infos .

Parameters (see also doc folder)

 A minimal configuration  must provide  infos about :
 PerlSetVar ConfigFile /usr/local/apache/conf/config_demo1.xml 

 The filename of the mean XML Config   :It's REQUIRED
 PerlSetVar Domain
 It fixes the value of domain for the  application protected by  this handler (see below) 
xml section in config
 Perlsetvar HandlerID <xml section>

 It fixes the value of XML section in config 

Example (a KISS example, see also eg folder)

In httpd.conf

 PerlModule Apache2::compat
 PerlModule Bundle::Apache2
 PerlModule Lemonldap::Handlers::Generic4a2 
 perltranshandler Lemonldap::Handlers::Generic4a2
 PerlSetVar Domain
 PerlSetVar Configfile /usr/local/apache/conf/application_new.xml
 PerlSetVar HandlerID myintranet
 proxypass /intranet
 proxypassreverse /intranet
 documentroot /usr/local/apache/htdocs

 In /usr/local/apache/conf/application_new.xml
        <domain    id=""
                          DisableAccessControl= "1"

 Now you can put in your browser and you will see lemonldap's  site
 AND now you can control who and where goes on your site .
 You can pass parameters from httpd.conf with perlsetvar  facilities  or put them in xml file


 It's the mean  function which does all jobs . If the enebledproxy parameter is set to 1  ,this function
 will push proxy_handler function reference on  the handler's stack . If not it returns DECLINED (mod_proxy will be actived) 
 It's the built-in proxy (LWP)  web embedded  in lemonldap framework . It is  actived by  enabledproxy parameter .
 Some parameters are about this proxy and its behaviour     
  append this keyword at the end of url and you will can see all headers send to host.
  Available  ONLY with built-in proxy


Generic4a2 is build arround perl's modules .

Those modules are :

Utilities :
  collection of functions
Core :
  It provides basics services like the cache service, forge header service or authorization service.  can use YOUR own services for all this cycle . It's plugger . Lemonldap framework is available 
 with somes services but you can with propose your own schemas.
 News parameters  were added in XML DTD in order to describe the sequence.
MatrixPolicy :
 manage authorization process , based on the hash of session (like preceding version)   
Memsession :
 manage the backend of session (cache level 3 and 4 ) 
AuthorizationHeader :
 manage the construction of header 
RewriteHTML :
 Rewrite on fly html source in order to ajust somes tags like BASE , href or src
 Available  ONLY with built-in proxy

More features

 Keep in mind  that the handler doesn't know HOW authenticate anybody but only knows WHERE authenticate . 
 The parameter 'portal' tells it where to send the authentification request. 
 Thre are three levels of cache in lemonldap . 

 *First cache (level 1) is a very KISS  , it's a memory structure in the program .
 *Next  cache (level 2) is realised by using berkeleyDB hash
 *Last cache (level 3) is realised by using memcached (see Apache::Session::Memorycached on CPAN)
