Description

Similar to normal HTTP Authentication, this plugin uses explicit URL parameters for transferring the username and passwort to a web script that implements the check and returns the authentication result in the HTTP response code.

Added the very important URL encoding for the username and password parameters. The encoding of other parts of the URL is up to the user (option 'script_auth_url').
