Hi, I found out via the guide and this community that to make a https request from the photon can be easiest done via a web hook. However, is it possible to access a website that requires authentication (user, password when entering the website? I see that by the particle.console one can select http basic authentication. This will not work with https, correct?
HTTP basic authentication can (and should) be done over https.
As the username is sent in the clear and the password is only minimally obscured in the protocol, it can easily be stolen over http (unencrypted) but is secure over https (TLS/SSL).
Thanks for the quick reply. So I missonderstood indeed the concept of basic auth. Is has nothing to do with the transfer protocol.
Glad to hear It should work then. I will try the web hook.
