Hi Joe,

So I only have to get this env variable and if it is filled, the user is
authenticated? Sounds great, I will give it a try.

What makes me a bit sceptical, is that there are no automated tests and
not much progress. Is this well tested and kept up-to-date? Which sites
are using it?

Anyway I want to understand the WebID-Authentication-Process and at
least once implement it myself, which leads me back to my initial questions.

Best regards,
Angelo
