hdigest: Server-side HTTP Digest (RFC2617) in the CGI monad

[ bsd3, library, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

For web applications running in a CGI monad container, this module provides a simple interface to generate HTTP Digest authentication challenges and to process the responses from clients. It implements RFC2617, but accepts the quirky responses generated by some non-compliant browsers.

This module was originally implemented for Serialist (http://serialist.net) and is deployed there in a FastCGI environment using the fastcgi package. It has been tested against a variety of browsers, including Firefox, Safari, IE, Opera, and others.
