In an environment where several web applications authenticate against the same source, the simplest way to attain single sign on would be to have the webserver handle authentication and pass the login information via HTTP headers to the application it proxies.

This addon allows for this setup. Technically, it picks up the HTTP Authorization header, extracts a username and a password and tries to login into the first database found in the database list.

If you have to set a specific database, possibly depending on the login provided, use the addon dbfilter_from_header.

The addon has to be loaded as server-wide module.
