This can be some a stretch, but let us just think that we want results by doing this:
- My way through the /secure/ directory remains safe and secure using Fundamental Authentication
- I'd rather not bother the consumer with signing in towards the /secure/ section
Can One submit qualifications for fundamental authentication by having an AJAX request?
xmlHttpRequest.setRequestHeader is the friend.
xhr.setRequestHeader("Authentication", "username:password in base64")
you need to simply convert username:password to base64
