|Authentication Scheme Name||Reference||Notes|
|Basic||[RFC2617], Section 2|
|Digest||[RFC2617], Section 3|
|Negotiate||[RFC4559], Section 3||This authentication scheme violates both HTTP semantics (being connection-oriented) and syntax (use of syntax incompatible with the WWW-Authenticate and Authorization header field syntax).|
