 A novel authentication method for Apache

This article shows you step by step how to compile and configure mod_auth_ibmdb2 (an Apache authentication module) using DB2 Universal Database as the database for storing user and group information. It explains the creation and use of the User Defined Functions (UDFs) for generating passwords in DB2. The UDFs provided are compatible to the functions that are used in Apache's htpasswd utility.
