AuthName RealmName

Each realm name entry must be within a session section. If more than one realm name is specified in the same session section, the last entry will be used for that session.

When processing failed requires, only one realm name will be used. The one used will be the one that is nearest (and farthest from the root) to the session for which access is being evaluated.
