[REBOL] Password encryption for Apache web-server

From: alex::pini::mclink::it at: 12-Aug-2000 15:20

>- Open Your Mind -<
I need user authentication on a couple of CGI-scripts, so I learned I need password encryption, too. I program on Amiga at home and am surrounded by windows and AS/400 at work, so I can't use the Unix crypt() version of htpasswd (the Apache program that generates user/password pairs). The Apache manual states that the MD5 version (which I can use on windows) will work anyway, but I couldn't manage, and it offers less protection anyway. There are many solutions to my problem (in fact it is *not* a problem for me anymore)... but, for ease of use and for personal satisfaction, I'd like to have a 100% crypt()-compatible encoder written in REBOL: after all, it's just text manipulation. One such version would run on all the 41+ platforms without problems. Unfortunately, I can't afford the luxury of writing one myself due to time constraints (and who knows if I'm good enough :-), so I ask you. (((-: Has one already been written? Will one of you write one (think about the glory :-) ? Alessandro Pini ([alex--pini--mclink--it]) That's *exactly* what I was going to suggest. (E.M.H.P.)
