What types of authentication does Databox use to connect to my Data Sources?


What are the different authentication types used?


Basic Authentication

Basic authentication is a simple authentication scheme built into the HTTP protocol. When your browser connects to a web server, it sends a “WWW-Authenticate: Basic” message in the HTTP header. Shortly after that, it sends your login credentials to the server using base64 encoding.

Proxy Authentication

Proxy authentication is used to gain access to a resource behind a proxy server. It authenticates the request to the proxy server, allowing it to transmit the request further.


OAuth is an authorization method used to provide access to resources over the HTTP protocol. It works by providing an application with an access token (representing your permission to access your data) to use for request authentication


OAuth 2.0 is an authorization protocol that gives Databox limited access to user data on a web server. OAuth2 enables Databox to access your data without having to handle or store your login information.
