Apache Overview HOWTO: Authentication modules Next Previous Contents

10. Authentication modules

In many situations (subscription services, sensitive information, private areas), user authentication is required. Apache includes basic authentication support. Additional authentication modules exist that connect Apache to existing security frameworks or databases, including: NT Domain controller, Oracle, mySQL, PostgresSQL, etc.

The LDAP modules are specially interesting, as they allow integration with company and enterprise wide existing directory services.

You can find these modules at http://modules.apache.org.
