REST API Authentication

I'm trying to access a inhouse EndPoint in my company from Salesforce.com through HTTP POST Method. How does the Authentication work on the Salesforce side? Before accessing the End Point do i need setup anything else on the Salesforce side?

Please refer the link below:


NOTE:  Before you can access external servers from an endpoint or redirect endpoint using Apex or any other feature, you must add the remote site to a list of authorized remote sites in the Salesforce user interface. To do this, log in to Salesforce and from Setup, click Security Controls | Remote Site Settings.
