http basic authentification user / pwd where to store it and how

ChristChrist BEMember ✭✭

Hello all,

we have an app who call some url and return some json datas.
All works fine since several years.

After an audit of security we need to add some security in our web service -> add basic authentification

I would like to know if there is some best way to follow ?

thanks for sharing your experience

    Authentication has to be create from server. There are standar authentication protocols. Most popular is to send a token in each request. If you are use asp net it has plenty tutorials.

    Ok i can find some tutorial but I would like perhpas to find some return of experience because I think to store credentials (user / password encrypt) on the device file or sql lite.
