Description

Mostly copied from mod_auth_basic of apache-2.2.

The basic-auth handshake was replaced by some code which gets the userid out of a customable variable. The variable could be a header field, a httpd environment variable or an SSL environment variable. The syntax is the same known from RewriteCond of mod_rewrite: e.g.: %{HTTP:variable}, %{ENV:variable} or %{SSL:variable}

No password is written into internal httpd variables. So the authentication has to be validated by mod_authn_anon.
For authorisation any of the authz standard modules could be used.
