The hdigest package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

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 ( 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.
