Member name Description
BasicAuthentication Indicates the standard HTTP authentication mechanism that uses a login and a password.

HTTP Basic authentication sends authentication credentials in clear text. You must implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) between the Subscriber and the IIS server when you use Web synchronization.

WindowsAuthentication Indicates an HTTP authentication mechanism based on the Windows Challenge/Response authentication mechanism. The challenge/response mechanism works only when the Subscriber computer and the IIS server computer are located in the same Windows domain or in trusted Windows domains.
