HTTP Basic Authentication
In the context of an HTTP transaction, basic access authentication is a method for an HTTP user agent to provide a user name and password when making a request. Working of the HTTP basic auth is shown in the following diagram
First the client requests for protected Resource (eg Login). The server responds to the client with a dialog box requesting user name and password. The client submits the user name and password to the server. If the credentials are correct the server will grant access to the protected resource. If the credentials are wrong the client will see the dialog box again till he logs in correctly. HTTP basic auth is implemented in many places the one that you can see commonly is in Router Log In's.
