In my last post I showed a very simple Basic Authentication Filter implementation and several people commented that the 'right' way to do this is by using a MessageHandler instead. In the post I discussed why I opted for a filter rather than the MessageHandler: A filter is much simpler to implement and keeps all the relevant code pieces in one place instead of scattering them throughout the Web API pipeline. This might not be the right choice for all authentication, but if you're doing custom authentication/authorization in your app you're not going to mix and match and plug a multitude of auth mechanisms together.
