Authorisation for RESTful Webserivce

Hi Everybody,

on Silverstripe 2.4.x, I'm trying to realize restful Webservice Access on one of the DataObjects of our Web-Project.

First part was pretty easy, just added

   static $api_access = array(
      'view' => array(
      'edit' => array(

to the DataObject Code. But of course I want to limit access (at least for PUT requests) to authorized users. The Service shall be accessed via an external Script, so I'm thinking of using Basic Auth, with Username & Password transfered within the header of the request.

How do I get Silverstripe to read / accept this kind of authentication?

Thanks a lot for a bit of insight :)

Kind Regards
