Basic Authentication Scheme is defined in RFC 2617 is based on the model that the client must authenticate itself with a user-ID and a password for each realm.

The realm value should be considered an opaque string which can only be compared for equality with other realms on that server. The server will service the request only if it can validate the user-ID and password for the protection space of the Request-URI.

There are no optional authentication parameters.

For Basic, the framework above is utilized as follows:

challenge   = "Basic" realm
credentials = "Basic" basic-credentials
