What exactly you want to achieve by doing "better web authentication"?
In you case, what are those weaknesses with htpasswd scheme?

I am asking because it is almost impossible to answer your question
without additional info.

Subject: Web Authentication

I have Slackware 10.1 runing. I am using it as a router and
fileserver. I use Apache 1.3 for web access. I have some web
directories which i want to secure more strongly than with htpasswd
but i dont know any other ways of authentication. Also a lot of my
scripts in those directories are wirted in PHP Perl and CGI scripting.
I need to find a better way of authentication? Does any one knows any
better way of authentication?
Thank you all in advance for your help
