Would it be possible to log out a user from our website if he/she is using basic authentication? I already know that killing a session isn't enough because once a user is authenticated, the request contains login information so the user is automatically logged in when they access the site again. The only solution I can figure out is to close the browser but we can't use that.

    If he is using authentication to access the website, can you just delete his credentials/account from the database for the site so that he can no longer authenticate to it?  I would figure that this would be the answer, but I may be wrong.

    Is this a "generic" authentication that can be used by multiple users?
