External authentication via REMOTE_USER

Reported by: andi Owned by:
Priority: 5 Milestone: later
Component: Plugins Version: 0.4-beta
Severity: normal Keywords:


Using the REMOTE_USER variable for authentication is necessary to use http authentication methods other then 'basic' provided by the web -server such as "Kerberos" or "Digest".

Attached patch adds a plugin that just uses REMOTE_USER as login.

On its own, this plugin is not actually useful because roundcube normaly needs the users plain password to authenticate against imap/smtp/sieve/ldap. I will open some more tickets for patches to implement SASL proxy authentication for those services.
