DESCRIPTION
       I wrote this module to work around the lack of DCE support for Solaris
       x86.  DCE authentication in my application is handled using Gradient's
       DCE plug-in for Netscape Enterprise Server. The request is encrypted
       using SSL.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
       The cache code was heavily borrowed from Apache::AuthenDBI by Edmund
       Mergl <E.Mergl@bawue.de>, but now has been stripped out in favor of the
       more general solution in Apache::AuthenCache by Jason Bodnar
        <jason@shakabuku.org>.
