Customer has a Backend Webservice that is running under HTTP and protected by Basic Authentication. On OSB, they have a Business Service based on this WSDL and a Proxy Service configured on the Business Service. They would like to have the client of the proxy service provide the basic ID/password to the Proxy Service and have that passed through to the backend Web service for authentication and authorization. They do not want to enforce by having users/groups, etc. at OSB level. Basically, they want to avoid duplicating the security information from the backend Web service's server domain into the OSB domain as well.
