Subject: Basic auth integration

Imported from the dev wiki:

In order to offer the possibility to authenticate users without dramatically changing the structure of things, I propose the above feature.

User authenticates using basic auth (population of the auth database is a separate problem, but auto user creation can probably be accomplished with an existing CGI, or if not, one written separately).

When OpenGuides notices this, it adds a flag to the metadata table on edits saying essentially "is authenticated". This information can then be appropriately displayed on the node. Magic is then needed to inhibit display of the "Your username" box, and have it automatically add the (correct!) username to the metadata table.

well the simplest solution would have the authentication mechanisim create a preferences cookie (ala preferences.cgi). I have attempted to hack up a copy of preferences.cgi to do this with an OpenID authentication system, but it's untested.

We probably will want to support at least basic auth and OpenID.

Status: newclosed

I don't think the ideas here are sufficiently well-defined, or the use-case thought through. Closing wontfix.
