401 / Unauthorized

“当前请求需要用户验证。该响应必须包含一个适用于被请求资源的WWW-Authenticate信息头用以询问用户信息。客户端可以重复提交一个包含恰当的Authorization头信息的请求。如果当前请求已经包含了Authorization证书,那么401响应代表着服务器验证已经拒绝了那些证书。如果401响应包含了与前一个响应相同的身份验证询问,且浏览器已经至少尝试了一次验证,那么浏览器应当向用户展示响应中包含的实体信息,因为这个实体信息中可能包含了相关诊断信息。“ — wikipedia

“The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a WWW-Authenticate header field containing a challenge applicable to the requested resource. The client MAY repeat the request with a suitable Authorization header field. If the request already included Authorization credentials, then the 401 response indicates that authorization has been refused for those credentials. If the 401 response contains the same challenge as the prior response, and the user agent has already attempted authentication at least once, then the user SHOULD be presented the entity that was given in the response, since that entity might include relevant diagnostic information. HTTP access authentication is explained in "HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access Authentication".“ — ietf
