Hi, is it possible to configure basic authentication over https? In NTLM settings on webgateway's UI  I can only see the option to use basic authentication, but not over which protocol

thanks in advance

Hi Renata,

Basic authentication is a method to send credentials from the client to the proxy|server (like NTLM or Kerberos). Setting the method does not control what channel (http|https) these credentials are sent.

If you want the credentials to be sent over a secure channel you have to change the type of authentication you're doing (explicit proxy auth to auth server with https).

For more info, see the following community thread about this:
