Testing your authentication in Rails apps is important but sometimes you don't need an entire authentication system like devise for backend systems. HTTP basic can be a good comprise but you still need to make sure to test that it's hooked up correctly. I found doing a full stack integration test using Capybara with Rails 3 to be a good balance between a simple test and assuring the authentication works.

I've started off this week's Code Reading series on Capistrano with a in deep look into how it converts the cap deploy command into a deployment recipe. If you've never looked at the internals of Capistrano, I'd recommend looking all the work it does behind the shell.
