Turn on Basic feed authentication over HTTP

This policy setting allows users to have their feeds authenticated through the Basic authentication scheme over an unencrypted HTTP connection. If you enable this policy setting the Windows RSS Platform authenticates feeds to servers by using the Basic authentication scheme in combination with a less secure HTTP connection. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the Windows RSS Platform does not authenticate feeds to servers by using the Basic authentication scheme in combination with a less secure HTTP connection. A developer cannot change this policy setting through the Feed APIs.


Additional Information

  1. Registry path is:
