Is there any way for Apache to support SSHA passwords?
I have a couple of dozens of user passwords in an OpenLDAP server which are encrypted with SSHA (i.e. salted SHA1). No more users are to be added in the future, so I would like to move all credentials in a .htpasswd file for simplifying maintenance.
The problem is that Apache only supports unsalted (thus insecure) SHA1 passwords. Is there any mod to add support for SSHA passwords to Apache?
If a module specifically for this does not exist, could this functionality be achieved with mod-authnz-external and some external utility?
