Pwauth is an authenticator designed to be used with mod_auth_external and the Apache HTTP Daemon to support reasonably secure web authentication out of the system password database on most versions of Unix. What pwauth actually does is very simple. Given a login and a password, it returns a status code indicating whether it is a valid login/password or not. It is normally installed as an suid-root program, so other programs (like Apache or a CGI program) can run it to check if a login/password is valid even though they don't themselves have read access to the system password database.
