From a previous thread, an expert said that this curl command would pass credentials to a web service

curl -u username:password

Open in new window

My question is what kind of credentials, would this be SAML, kerberos, etc

    the -u is passing the credentials for the basic authentication:

    if you need NTLM you can use:
    curl --ntlm --user username:password
