There are lots of authentication modules on cpan. I guess there is
something for you:

	-> let the webserver do authenticaion

	-> basic and digest authentication

	-> use catalyst authentication with htpasswd-files

Or you use Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal, and populate the
config hash within "finalize_config" (If you want to store accounts and
passwords in a file, which has no standard-format. Is this what you
meant with "i don't want to store the autentication in the hash? In that
case: Take a look at Config::Any. It might help you parsing your file.)

https://metacpan.org is your friend :)
