I'm working on a new project at work in PhP, and have come across something I'm unfamiliar with/can't find any help with.
In the .htaccess file for the directory I see
AuthType UWNetID require valid-user
I have only ever seen basic, and digest here. Can someone help explain what might be going on here? Beg pardon if this is discussed someplace else, I just couldn't find a post that addressed something of this nature.
Keep in mind that UW is (University of Washington) and NetID is a student's ID and they are using Shibboleth authentication.
