Privilege Separation for Apache

The Privilege Separation patches for Apache HTTPD and 'mod_dav' address the problem that an Apache WebDAV server can only write files as the non-privileged Web server user (usually something like 'nobody' or 'www'). The patches address this shortcoming in a secure way by adding privilege separation to the Apache Web server (conceptually similar to SSH privilege separation). A privilege-separated Apache can be used to provide secure WebDAV write access to ~user directories and allow the use of per-user Unix quotas. When combined with mod_ssl, it provides a convenient and secure remote file serving system, as WebDAV clients are seamlessly integrated into both Windows and Mac OS X.
