AUTHENTICATEF enumeration

Flags used by the IAuthenticateEx::AuthenticateEx method to pass information about the authentication request.

Syntax

typedef enum  { 
  AUTHENTICATEF_PROXY  = 0x00000001,
  AUTHENTICATEF_BASIC  = 0x00000002,
  AUTHENTICATEF_HTTP   = 0x00000004
} AUTHENTICATEF;

Constants

  • AUTHENTICATEF_PROXY
    The authorization is handled by the proxy server.

  • AUTHENTICATEF_BASIC
    The authorization will use basic authentication.

  • AUTHENTICATEF_HTTP
    The authorization will occur over HTTP.

Remarks

These values are used primarily by the Windows RSS Platform to control automatic authentication of feeds. Proxy authentication is not allowed, nor is basic authentication over HTTP allowed. However, basic over Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) is allowed.

Note To allow basic authentication over HTTP, start Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), and configure the value for" Turn on Basic feed authentication over HTTP" under Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Internet Explorer, RSS Feeds.
