We have protected resource with basic authentication scheme and that works when we are accessing via browser client. However, I wanted to know how that can be achieved via curl command. Please suggest.
Here you go Authentication · Everything curl
HTTP Curl also supports user and password in HTTP URLs, thus you can pick a file like: curl http://name:firstname.lastname@example.org/full/path/to/file or specify user and password separately like in curl -u name:passwd http://machine.domain/full/path/to/file HTTP offers many different methods of authentication and curl supports several: Basic, Digest, NTLM and Negotiate (SPNEGO). Without telling which method to use, curl defaults to Basic. You can also ask curl to pick the most secure ones out of the ones that the server accepts for the given URL, by using --anyauth. NOTE! According to the URL specification, HTTP URLs can not contain a user and password, so that style will not work when using curl via a proxy, even though curl allows it at other times. When using a proxy, you _must_ use the -u style for user and password. HTTPS Probably most commonly used with private certificates, as explained below.
