You can specify two parameters on this tab:

Default realm name for basic authorization
Encryption key for Cookie authorization.

 

Default realm name for basic authorization

You can specify any string describing the protected zone of your site, e.g. "Restricted area" or "Members only". This name is displayed in the dialog box for entering the username and password when the user's browser tries to open a protected page. This parameter makes sense only for the Basic Authorization mode.

 

Encryption key for Cookie authorization.

A symmetric key is used to encrypt the string containing the username and password in the Cookie authorization mode. This key consists of eight integers from 0 to 255 separated by commas. You can type the integers manually or generate a random set of integers by clicking the "Random key" button. If you leave the field empty, the default key will be used for encryption.
