I have seen this link: http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/user/handlers/http.html#PerlAuthzHandler
and as it said: This phase requires a successful authentication from the
previous phase, because a username is needed in order to decide
whether a user is authorized to access the requested resource.
but what if I don't want to authenticate users (BECAUSE I have already authenticate them using freeRADIUS and IEE802.1x) , I want only to authorize them, you would ask me how can we get the username.
I have usernames with there IPs in mysql DB like this:
and I have them too in the DNS:
in its revers zone (1.168.192.in-addr.arpa):
$TTL 60 ; 1 minute
10 PTR Mark
11 PTR Mike
How can I let module_perl make use of mysql DB or DNS zone to authorize my users using PerlAuthzHandler ?
