Q. Basic Authentication: how can I log a user out?

A.

The browser caches the username and password until the browser is closed. The Basic Authentication protocol does not allow you to "logout" a user without changing his password. The Basic Authentication protocol does not support the notion of timeout either. You could use AuthentiX cookie-based authentication which supports timeouts and logouts.
