I am planning to implement a login authentication for my web application using the unix user credentials, given the web application resides on the same unix box. Instead of storing the user name and password in some file, I want to use some unix service maybe a script, which will take the username and password and check the authentication and return the result to my web application which will then do its job.
Is there any existing service in Unix for this? If not then how do I go about it.
