Shared libraries for WebAuth authentication

WebAuth is a cookie-based web authentication system built on top of Kerberos. It relies on a central authentication server that handles all user authentication for a domain and creates user authentication credentials for any web server that needs strong authentication.

This package contains the shared library used by the WebAuth modules, Perl bindings, and command-line utilities. It does token encoding and decoding and other lower-level parts of the WebAuth protocol.

Package version:3.6.0-1+lenny1

    assume the browser supports cookies and don't probe.
