Description : Perl Authentication and Authorization via cookies.
Apache2::AuthCookie allows you to intercept a user's first unauthenticated access
to a protected document. The user will be presented with a custom form
where they can enter authentication credentials. The credentials are posted
to the server where AuthCookie verifies them and returns a session key.
The session key is returned to the user's browser as a cookie. As a cookie,
the browser will pass the session key on every subsequent accesses. AuthCookie
will verify the session key and re-authenticate the user.
