i try to replace a existing apache, which works as a reverse
proxy, with nginx.
In general this seems to be not a great problem. But we use in
the existing environment mod_auth_tkt  for authentication.
One requirement in this configuration is that the authentication should
be the job of the reverse proxy with a login_page instead of the
browsers login popup window.
Is there a module in nginx which does something similar to mod_auth_tkt?
Are there any alternatives in this direction?
Thanks for your help & suggestions…
