I have written a lightwight authorization that runs on apache servers.
The application does not need to be changed, beacuse it can be
used similar to basic authorization in the configuration files.
You simply specify which urls are about to be protected.
Also it does not store user credentials on the server, but creates
tickets that are stored in the browsers cookies. The user is required
to have a valid email address to which the activation code is beeing
This requires however that you can install perl modules on the
server and have control over its configuration file.
If this sounds interesting, I could send a copy of this, altough
the installation is not well documented yet.
