Without reading the article, I have to say that I'm skeptical basic authentication is somehow more secure then HMAC. But I am not an expert in matters of security. I will add the referenced article to my reading list. Thanks for the share!
Sorry but I have not said that basic authentication is better than HMAC I was trying to say that despite HMAC can be defeated is better to use HMAC than basic authentication... I will edit my reply to make it clear.
My apologies for the misunderstanding!
I am glad you pointed it because after I read it again I have to admit that was confusing.
