Re: Non-interactive password check
On session start the user sends his login name and the password for the
remote account. I want to check the authenticity by something like
trying to ssh into the remote account and immediately logout again. The
unix user doing this is the owner of the apache process.
If this is the only time you'll ever want to authenticate users outside
of account login, this hack will work. If you want a solution that
scales (so that one day your users can be authenticated by mail and web
servers, web applications, anything...), use LDAP.
