This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

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.
