Release Notes

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
     To configure the authentication, 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());
     Please see the project site for more details.
