Basic Access Authentication is an authentication mechanism to include user's credentials in the HTTP headers. Basic authentication also works across firewalls and proxy servers.
However, the disadvantage of Basic authentication is that it transmits unencrypted base64-encoded passwords across the network. Therefore, you only should use this authentication when you know that the connection between the client and the server is secure. The connection should be established either over a dedicated line or by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption and Transport Layer Security (TLS).
