I am not saying use directory level permissions. My post does not assume a simple level of yes or no auth. I am saying use a session. If the user connects without a valid session pass him the the session creator. If the has access to the base app (via IP or whatever your base auth level is), then grant him a session and redirect back to the page he tried to hit. If the user then needs expanded access have a login page that verifies whatever auth you want and grants auth level tokens and stores them in his current session. This resolves the base users from getting user/pass auths while still allowing you to have fine grained auth privs for advanced users. Then your cgi can take a look at the session and form the pages and options to something that is acceptable for the auth privs that the session grants. Make sense?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
