Choose an authentication scheme

Note
Note
By default, a user of XMLmind XSL Server does not have to authenticate herself/himself. Therefore, by default, this configuration step is not displayed.
A user of XMLmind XSL Server will be prompted by the client (e.g. the Web browser) for a username and a password each time she/he will use the service. An authentication scheme specifies how the credentials of the user are passed from the client to the server.
Choose "Digest (recommended for a normal web server)" if you have selected option "Web server (HTTP)" during the preceding configuration step. The Digest authentication scheme transmits encrypted passwords to the server.
Choose "Basic (recommended for a secure web server)" if you have selected option "Secure Web server (HTTPS)" during the preceding configuration step. The Basic authentication scheme transmits clear text passwords to the server. However in the case of HTTPS, the communication channel between the client and its server is itself encrypted.
