Allow Basic authentication for HTTP

Setting the policy to Enabled or leaving it unset will allow Basic authentication challenges received over non-secure HTTP.

Setting the policy to Disabled forbids non-secure HTTP requests from using the Basic authentication scheme; only secure HTTPS is allowed.

This policy setting is ignored (and Basic is always forbidden) if the AuthSchemes policy is set and does not include Basic.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
