Basic Auth for simple web server

Hi, I'm a Python newbie;
I have to write a simple webserver, and I need to
implement a basic authentication as specified in the RFC2617.
I wonder if there is a Python library for doing that.

Thanks!

Have a look at paste (http://pythonpaste.org/).

For instance, to enable authentication for user foo, you can do the
following

from paste.auth.basic import AuthBasicHandler

def only_for_foo(env, user, passwd):
return user == 'foo' and passwd = 'bar'

auth_app = AuthBasicHandler(
myapp, 'app realm', only_for_foo)

(where myapp is your WSGI application, of course).

twisted.web2 is one.
