Basic Authentication

Basic authentication requires a valid user name and password.

The basic authentication mechanism relies on the standard Authorization: basic (base64 encoded username:password) HTTP header. Because the username:password can be decoded from the request, basic authentication should only be used over HTTPS.

SAP Mobile Platform basic authentication uses the following authentication providers:
  • HTTP/HTTPS Authentication
  • System Login (Admin Only)
  • Directory Service (LDAP/AD)
