By default, will use the ASP.NET Membership Provider ( But you can modify and extend this behavior in either or both of the following ways:
     - Pass your own IMembershipProvider to the BasicAuthenticationMessageHandler constructor
     - Set the GetAdditionalClaims property to a Func that returns a collection of System.Security.Claims.Claim objects
     - Set the IssueChallengeResponse to true to allow only authenticated callers and tell browsers to prompt for credentials

     To configure this module, place the following line somewhere in your startup code - e.g. the Register() method in /app_start/WebApiConfig.cs:

         GlobalConfiguration.Configuration.MessageHandlers.Add(new BasicAuthenticationMessageHandler());

     And then make sure you use the [Authorize] attribute to protect your controllers and their actions - either with a global filter or on individual controllers and actions.

     Please see the project site for more details.
