mod_auth_aix is an Apache module which allows the Apache Web server to use AIX Loadable Authentication Modules as its source of basic authentication. Due to its generic approach, mod_auth_aix should work with any AIX Loadable Authentication Module, including DCE. "Loadable Authentication Modules" are AIX's way to extend the identification and authentication functions of the operating system. They are, to a certain degree, the AIX equivalent of the PAM and NSS mechanisms known to many other systems.

Release Notes: This release introduces a configurable length backlog using ap_listenbacklog. Minimal corrections were made regarding error handling and shutdown behavior.
Release Notes: This release fixes a minor bug where defunct processes occurred under some circumstances.
Release Notes: A potential NULL pointer dereference has been fixed.
Release Notes: Authentication modules are now loaded with load() instead of dlopen(). The identification and authentication functions provided by a loaded module are now resolved with a call to the module's initialization function instead of resolving them by name. This should improve compatibility with third party authentication modules.
