There are three types of modules involved in the authentication and authorization process. You will usually need to choose at least one module from each group.
- Authentication type (see the AuthType directive)
- Authentication provider
- Authorization (see the Require directive)
The module mod_authnz_ldap is both an authentication and authorization provider. The module mod_authn_alias is not an authentication provider in itself, but allows other authentication providers to be configured in a flexible manner.
You probably also want to take a look at the Access Control (p. 1281) howto, which discusses the various ways to control access to your server.
