repoze.who is an identification and authentication framework for arbitrary WSGI applications. It can be used as WSGI middleware, or as an API from within a WSGI application.
repoze.who is inspired by Zope 2’s Pluggable Authentication Service (PAS) (but repoze.who is not dependent on Zope in any way; it is useful for any WSGI application). It provides no facility for authorization (ensuring whether a user can or cannot perform the operation implied by the request). This is considered to be the domain of the WSGI application.
It attempts to reuse implementations from paste.auth for some of its functionality.
