Subject [httpclient] HTTP Digest authentication
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2002 05:09:52 GMT

I was looking at the 

    org.apache.commons.httpclient.Authenticator

class.  The class implements "Basic" authentication only.

It does not implement the "Digest" authentication scheme.

The Digest authentication scheme is described in RFC 2617:

  ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2617.txt

Is anybody planning to implement Digest authentication?

Is there a reason why it has not been implemented?

Would it be worthwhile for me to implement Digest 
authentication?

-Sean
