mod_auth_vas is an Apache authentication and authorization module for use with the Apache Web server.

The module uses Vintela Authentication Services (VAS) to implements the HTTP SPNEGO protocol, with optional fallback to 'Basic' authentication for browsers that do not support SPNEGO.

In effect, using mod_auth_vas allows the Apache Web server to perform Windows integrated (single sign-on) authentication.

Browsers that can authenticate using SPNEGO automatically (without prompting for a password) include Internet Explorer and Firefox (with appropriate plugin).

What's New in This Release:
This release fixes a problem with the AuthVasNegotiate, removes a race condition from setup-mod_auth_vas, and improves security of the service keytab.
