I'm using the WP REST API in combination with the Application Passwords plugin. What I would like to do is simply check to make sure a username and password combination (encoded as a base64 string) is valid, but I don't see an endpoint that would correspond to this functionality. Any ideas?


Have you tried the official Basic Authentication plugin?
