This module is a very simple, lightweight method of setting up a single signon system across multiple web-applicaitions hosted on different servers. The actual authentication & authorization system is deployed on a single server instead of each individual server. All other servers are built with mod_auth_remote enabled. When a request comes in, mod_auth_remote obtains the client username & password from the client via basic authentication scheme. It then builds a HTTP header with authorization header built from the client's userid:passwd. mod_auth_remote then makes a HEAD request to the authentication server. On reciept of a 2XX response, the client is validated; for all other responses the client is not validated.
