NAME

Apache::Wyrd::Services::PreAuth - Login to Apache::Wyrd::Services::Auth directly

SYNOPSIS

  <Directory /www/someplace/preauth>
    SetHandler perl-script
    PerlHandler  Apache::Wyrd::Services::PreAuth
  </Directory>

DESCRIPTION

Apache::Wyrd::Services::PreAuth is a much more simple form of the Apache::Wyrd::Services::Auth class of handlers, in that it represents only that step in the process where a Apache::Wyrd::Services::LoginServer object is used to authenticate the user. Typically this is done to provide a login identity before a restricted page/directory is requested, rather than the redirect-to-login-if-unauthorized model that Apache::Wyrd::Services::Auth uses.

Otherwise, it behaves the same as a Apache::Wyrd::Services::PreAuth handler, and uses the same dirconfig parameters.
