Introduction

Digest authentication is a method of HTTP authentication that improves upon Basic authentication by providing a way to authenticate without having to transmit the password in clear text across the network.

This adapter allows authentication against text files containing lines having the basic elements of Digest authentication:

  • username, such as "joe.user"

  • realm, such as "Administrative Area"

  • MD5 hash of the username, realm, and password, separated by colons

The above elements are separated by colons, as in the following example (in which the password is "somePassword"):

someUser:Some Realm:fde17b91c3a510ecbaf7dbd37f59d4f8
