Subject [users@httpd] Best practice - apache access control via memcache
Date Tue, 05 May 2009 16:00:50 GMT
I'm looking for some advice on which is the best way to approach this..
The goal here is to serve protected static pages from apache (2.2.9,  
running on RHEL) based on user information stored in memcache.

There is an authentication app where users are directed to, if they  
don't have a cookie set. The authentication app can authenticate the  
user and write their credentials to memcache and set the cookie. The  
user is then redirected back to the apache server to serve the  
protected pages.

I'm looking for best practices or a module in apache that can lookup  
memcache based on the http cookie in order to serve protected static  
pages..  Searching the web, the only apache module that I could find  
was authmemcookie which unfortunately has some issues under RHEL. Any  
input is greatly appreciated.. Thanks for your time.
