Hi, my name is Christian Mueller and I would like to work on  
better/more flexible authentication or authorization subsystems. My  
idea is to have a multiplexing authentication plugin which allows  
different authentication mechanisms for different clients. (based on  
IP Address, login id,  http header attributes and much more).

A second important part is to offer our users the possibility to write  
their own authentication plugin and use their own backends.  
Configuration should be possible using the GUI Interface or using REST.

Should I create a description in the wiki and add a link to
