In particular, an authentication scheme checks credentials presented by the user against some data store containing user information, and determines whether the credentials match those stored in the data store.
How do I get my basic authentication username and password?
Step 1 – Understanding Basic Authentication
“QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ==” is just “username:password” encoded in Base64(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64). In order to access headers and other HTTP properties in . NET (C#) you need to have access to the current Http Context: HttpContext httpContext = HttpContext.
Is basic authentication safe?
Note: The HTTP basic authentication scheme can be considered secure only when the connection between the web client and the server is secure. If the connection is insecure, the scheme does not provide sufficient security to prevent unauthorized users from discovering the authentication information for a server.
Why is basic authentication bad?
There are a few issues with HTTP Basic Auth: The password is sent over the wire in base64 encoding (which can be easily converted to plaintext). The password may be stored permanently in the browser, if the user requests. (Same as previous point, in addition might be stolen by another user on a shared machine).
How do I make basic authentication more secure?
As the name itself implies, ‘Basic Authentication‘ is just basic security mechanism. Don’t rely on it to provide you with worry free security. Using SSL on top of it does makes it bit more secure but there are better mechanisms.
What prevents authentication?
User authentication is a method that keeps unauthorized users from accessing sensitive information. For example, User A only has access to relevant information and cannot see the sensitive information of User B.

What are the types of broken authentication vulnerabilities?
These five identity attacks can exploit broken authentication and impact your organization negatively, discussed as follows:
Broad-based Phishing Campaigns.
Spear Phishing Campaigns.
