Authentication instructions for securing webhooks

For now, our recommendation for securing webhooks involves using basic authentication and HTTPS on your endpoint. This helps prevent any altering of any information communicated to you by EasyPost, and it will prevent any third parties from masquerading as EasyPost in order to send you fraudulent data.

Here is an example of how you could add basic authentication to your webhook URL:

https://username:secret@www.example.com/webhook
