Securing Your Web Pages with Apache Page 14

Apache provides a rich set of control mechanisms for protecting Web pages, and continues to track emerging standards, such as the Digest Authentication one, very closely. With care and a little creativity, you should be able to easily apply whatever protections you want to your Web site.

Got a Topic You Want Covered?

If you have a particular Apache-related topic that you'd like covered in a future article in this column, please let me know; drop me an email at <coar@Apache.Org>.
