Description (last modified by matt)
Plugin that forwards the current HTTP_AUTH'ed user to Piwik
- What is HttpAuthLogin plugin ?
It's a plug-in that authentifies users based on HTTP_AUTH. HTTP_AUTH is a mechanism provided by the webserver itself (I tested this with Apache). The webserver prompts the user for a login and password, matches it to a database (or a file, you decide), and if the authentication is successful, it lets you access the current logged-in user from PHP.
- What use cases is HttpAuthLogin useful ?
If you have several web services running on the same machine, you can achieve Single Sign-On. For instance, if you run Piwik, a bug tracker, and a WebDAV disk space on the same web server, you could log-in once on the bug tracker, and be automagically logged-in on Piwik.
HTTP_AUTH is extremely widely supported. Even command-line tools like cURL or wget support it. If for some reason you'd like to write a script that fetches stuff out of Piwik, but you'd like it to be authentified, it'd be a lot easier to do with HttpAuthPlugIn.
