README for CGIwrap: ------------------- This is CGIWrap - a gateway that allows more secure user access to CGI programs on an HTTPd server than is provided by the http server itself. The primary function of CGIwrap is to make certain that any CGI script runs with the permissions of the user who installed it, and not those of the server. CGIwrap works with NCSA httpd, Apache, CERN httpd, NetSite Commerce and Communications servers, and probably any other Unix based web server software that supports CGI. CGIWrap is licensed under the GNU General Public License. See the file COPYING in the distribution for more details. If you're going to include something about it in a book, I'd appreciate you sending me a copy, but it's not required by the license. An important note is, this script makes the CGI access MORE secure, but it does not make CGI "secure". By it's very nature, CGI itself can never be 100% secure, it is always dependent on the script itself. It is always a good idea to pay attention to the various unix security and CGI authoring news groups. If in doubt, show your scripts to someone who is more experienced, they might catch something you missed. -- Nathan Neulinger (email@example.com) Installation Instructions: -------------------------- Read the documentation in htdocs/index.html for hints and installation instructions. *OR* Read the plain text documentation in docs/.
