    Apache Acces control list

    I have created an intranet site in PHP and perl that uses PKI authentication and is on a Apache webserver.

    I need to control access to to certain areas of the site and do not want to use a password approach.

    Is it possible by using apache, or more specifically a htaccess file to read a text file that contains a list of authorised users. So something like:

    SSLRequire %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN_CN} in {Read text file of authorised users}

    Is this possible?

    Also I would like to obtain the first 5 chars of the SSL_CLIENT_S_DN_CN and compare this against the named user list. So in using the above example:

    SSLRequire %{First 5 chars of the SSL_CLIENT_S_DN_CN} in {"bobsm", "tomsm", "pauls"}

    Again is this possible?

    If not is there any other way to control user access to specific directories or would I have to create a PHP script to do all this?

    Thanks in advance

    Not out of the box, but it should be trivial to modify one of the existing auth_ mods to do what you need.
