Apache::AuthenIMAP - Perform Basic User Authentication against an IMAP server
Allows users to give their username and e-mail password for authentication against a IMAP server for access to restricted web pages.
#httpd.conf <Location /> AuthName 'your-authentication-domain' AuthType Basic PerlSetVar IMAPServer imapserver.yoyodyne.com PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthenIMAP require group staff require user john lisa require valid-user </Location>
This module performs basic user authentication by attempting to log in to the IMAP server specified. If a group requirement is specified, the module attempts to authorize the user using local group information (/etc/group and NIS have both been tested).
This module requires the Mail::IMAPClient module. For lighter server loads and increased speed, it is suggested that this module be used in conjunction with the Apache::AuthenCache module.
Set the type of authentication. Only Basic is supported.
Set the realm for basic authentication.
The require directive takes any of three forms:
require valid-user require user user1 user2 ... require group group1 group2 ...
The first successfully authenticates and authorizes any successful IMAP login. The second only authorizes successful authentications for the specified users. The third does a local group membership check for successful authentications and only authorizes users whose primary or secondary groups are specified.
This specifies the IMAP server to contact in order to perform the authentication.
This specifies the TCP port to connect to on the IMAP server. If left unspecified, the default IMAP port, 143, is used.
John "Rowan" Littell (littejo at earlham dot edu), scarfed the basic skeleton of this module from the Apache::AuthenN2 module by Valerie Delane. Mario van den Heuvel (m.heuvel at sendrata dot com) supplied a password existence check fix.
