Class Description

 An authentication module for ROOT based network services, like rootd 
 and proofd.                                                          
                                                                      


TAuthenticate(TSocket *sock, const char *remote, const char *proto, Int_t security)
 Create authentication object.

Bool_t Authenticate()
 Authenticate to remote rootd or proofd server. Return kTRUE if
 authentication succeeded.

Bool_t CheckNetrc(TString &user, TString &passwd)
 Try to get user name and passwd from the ~/.rootnetrc or
 ~/.netrc files. First ~/.rootnetrc is tried, after that ~/.netrc.
 These files will only be used when their access masks are 0600.
 Returns kTRUE if user and passwd were found for the machine
 specified in the URL. If kFALSE, user and passwd are "".
 The format of these files are:

 # this is a comment line
 machine <machine fqdn> login <user> password <passwd>

 and in addition ~/.rootnetrc also supports:

 secure <machine fqdn> login <user> password <passwd>

 for the secure protocols. All lines must start in the first column.

const char* GetGlobalUser()
 Static method returning the global user.

const char* GetGlobalPasswd()
 Static method returning the global global password.

char* PromptUser(const char *remote)
 Static method to prompt for the user name to be used for authentication
 to rootd or proofd. User is asked to type user name.
 Returns user name (which must be deleted by caller) or 0.

char* PromptPasswd(const char *prompt)
 Static method to prompt for the user's passwd to be used for
 authentication to rootd or proofd. Uses non-echoing command line
 to get passwd. Returns passwd (which must de deleted by caller) or 0.

void AuthError(const char *where, Int_t err)
 Print error string depending on error code.

void SetGlobalUser(const char *user)
 Set global user name to be used for authentication to rootd or proofd.

void SetGlobalPasswd(const char *passwd)
 Set global passwd to be used for authentication to rootd or proofd.

void SetSecureAuthHook(SecureAuth_t func)
 Set secure authorization function. Automatically called when libSRPAuth
 is loaded.
