HTTP basic authentication collection

Use this page to specify a user name and password for transport-level basic authentication security for this port. Use this configuration when a Web service is a client to another Web service.

Use transport-level security to enable basic authentication. Transport-level security can be enabled or disabled independently from message-level security. Because transport-level security provides minimal security, use message-level security when security is essential to the Web service application.
