Streaming API : Security concerns in Production environment


As per the Salesforce documentation, it is recommended to use OAuth 2.0 if using Streaming API in Production environment.

If instead of using OAuth 2.0 in production environment, if we use the simple authentication, will it cause any issues?
We have verified using simple authentication in Sandbox account, and we are not facing any issues with it.

*TECHNICALLY* you can use basic auth in Production.

*FOR HEAVENS SAKE* never use basic authentication in Production - basic is non-secure and you're going to be passing your credentials essentially in the clear for anyone to sniff, intercept, and use against your Production environment.  Make the investment now and protect your Production data.

Don't be lazy.  =)
