thanx for the reply Gonzalo, but I think what I need is a bit different
from the iHttpModule. I have a website to authenticate on. On the same
webserver, there is also a apache proxy:

        ProxyRequests Off
        ProxyPreserveHost Off
        <Proxy *>
                Order deny,allow
                Allow from all
        ProxyPass /
        ProxyPassReverse /

what I'm looking for, is a way to let mono authenticate the request, and
if ok, let apache do the forwarding. I just can't seem to find a good
proxy module in c#, and my own written one just doesn't do the job

Anyone any idea how to get this done?
