The password for a basic auth site will be encoded in the authorization
header (you have to parse out the base64 piece, base64 decode it to a string
and take the part after the : character, but you'll have it). It is also
usually in the AUTH_PASSWORD server variable.

You can't get the password for an IWA site.
