UserAuthentication

The User Authentication system will need to be able to verify the user requesting resources from the GISDR. Proposal is to use Apache with mod_auth_ldap as the authentication mechanism.

The LDAP_USER variable provided by mod_auth_ldap will be used for all functions requiring user information, including AccessDelegation and UserNotification. The LDAP database will be used to maintain additional user information, such as an e-mail address.

Additionally, permissions to repositories will also be stored in the LDAP database.
