    364    The "Authorization" header field allows a user agent to authenticate
    365    itself with an origin server &mdash; usually, but not necessarily, after receiving a <x:ref>401
    366    (Unauthorized)</x:ref> response. Its value consists of credentials containing
    367    information of the user agent for the realm of the resource being
    368    requested.

    374    If a request is
    375    authenticated and a realm specified, the same credentials &SHOULD;
    376    be valid for all other requests within this realm (assuming that
    377    the authentication scheme itself does not require otherwise, such
    378    as credentials that vary according to a challenge value or using
    379    synchronized clocks).

     377   credentials that vary according to a challenge value or using synchronized
