What are the security issues using authentication from another site (basic auth)?
I have a WSS installation that supports Basic Authentication / SSL (it is hosted on a public website). I am creating a sister site in ASP.NET and am considering starting credentials and allowing users to log in to the new system, provided there is no 401 Not Authorized error.
Both are web-based applications that will be used by approximately 20-50 people.
What am I missing? I've never heard of this before, but I don't understand why it won't work.
