NAME

vmod-basicauth − Basic HTTP authentication

SYNOPSIS

import basicauth;

BOOL basicauth.match(STRING passfile, STRING authstr);

DESCRIPTION

The vmod-basicauth module implements basic HTTP authentication against the password file created using the htpasswd(1) command.

Four kinds of password hashes are supported: Apache MD5 ($apr1$), crypt(3), SHA1, and plaintext.

The match function returns TRUE or FALSE depending on whether the authentication succeeds or not. The passfile argument supplies the name of the password file to use. The authstr argument is the authentication string (normally, the value of the Authorization HTTP header.

Example: VCL 3.0

if (!basicauth.match("/var/www/.htpasswd", req.http.Authorization)) {
    error 401 "Restricted";
}

Example: VCL 4.0

if (!basicauth.match("/var/www/.htpasswd", req.http.Authorization)) {
    return (synth(401, "Restricted"));
}
