in reply to basic login

Do you mean "basic login" as in a simple cookie-based login or do you mean HTTP Basic Authentication, which is part of the HTTP standard and is handled by the web server optionally with the help of your programming language of choice? The former is common but the latter has nothing to do with cookies or independently managed sessions. Apache, Nginx, Lighttpd, Lightspeed, IIS, Cherokee, or whatever should be enough to take care of HTTP Basic Authentication although a program can contain code to do that part rather than using their configuration.
