Authentication system changes

May 15th, 2005 by Bill Marquette

While we’re still setup for HTTP Basic authentication, we’re no longer doing it at the web server level, it’s been moved to the PHP layer. This change will eventually allow us to move to a more robust authentication scheme that will allow for role based access and even offloading authentication to centralized servers (LDAP, RADIUS, SecurID, etc). Let us know if there are any problems (and please please let us know if somehow we missed a PHP file!) This does have the potential to impact security of the firewall so it’s important.

Please don’t post technical questions or off-topic comments. It is far more likely that your questions and concerns will be addressed effectively through one of our support channels.
