Hello.

Is there a way to retrieve the password of the user that was authenticated
using Basic Authentication? What if the user was authenticated using
Integrated Windows Authentication?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

The password for a basic auth site will be encoded in the authorization
header (you have to parse out the base64 piece, base64 decode it to a string
and take the part after the : character, but you'll have it). It is also
usually in the AUTH_PASSWORD server variable.

You can't get the password for an IWA site.
