      Description

      Although the HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access Authentication RFC states that the http headers should use "an extensible,
      case-insensitive token to identify the authentication scheme" libraries like acegi security require the response header to be case sensitive. ie "Basic" not "basic"
