Dear Group,

I am not a webdav expert but I read on a microsoft website, that 
microsoft disabled Basic Authentication for windows due to security 
reasons of the Basic Authentication standard. I also read "The most 
serious flaw in Basic authentication is that it results in the 
essentially cleartext transmission of the user's password over the 
physical network." on this website:

If I get this right, it is not a good idea that owncloud only uses this 
type of Authentication standard?
