BasicAuth Validator

The BasicAuth validator leverages HTTP Basic Authentication for authentication and role-permission-based authorization for you.

This validator will challenge users with browser-based basic authentication. It will use whatever authentication system and user service you have configured.

If you don't change the default settings, then CBSecurity will switch to using the BasicAuthUserService which allows you to store user credentials in your configuration file. You can check out our Basic Authentication section for further information.

cbsecurity = {

    firewall : {
        validator = "BasicAuthValidator@cbsecurity"


Remember that a validator can exist globally and on a per ColdBox Module level.
