Configuration Management / Web Server Uses Basic Authentication over HTTPS

Web and API


The remote web server contains web pages that are protected by 'Basic' authentication over HTTPS.


While this is not in itself a security flaw, in some organizations, the use of 'Basic' authentication is discouraged as, depending on the underlying implementation, it may be vulnerable to account brute-forcing or may encourage Man-in-The-Middle (MiTM) attacks.


Make sure that the use of HTTP 'Basic' authentication is in line with your organization's security policy.
