I am on OE 11.7.2 (Windows) and working on migrating some REST services to PASOE. 

After some experimenting, I was able to move our existing (non PASOE) REST services to work as a PASOE WebApp REST by deploying the incremental .zip via deployREST.bat.  This works, and our REST services map the Authorization header get the expected value and work properly.

I would like to migrate these REST services to use PASOE WebHandlers.  However, I have read (and found in practice) that PASOE WebHandlers do not have access to the Authorization header, and a few of these services use the Authorization header for Basic authentication.

Are there any workarounds for this, or post describing how to migrate to PASOE and get this type of functionality? I know we can simple send the data over in a different header (MyAuthorization), but that will require the consumers make changes on their end, which we are trying to avoid.
