Class Http_client.digest_auth_handler

class digest_auth_handler : ?enable_auth_in_advance:bool -> #key_handler -> auth_handler
Digest authentication. Authentication information is obtained by the passed key_handler.

This handler is compatible with RFC 2069 and RFC 2617. In particular, the following protocol options are available:

  • The algorithms MD5 and MD5-sess are implemented
  • The quality of protection mode "auth" is implemented. The optional mode "auth-int" has been omitted.
  • The information of the Authentication-Info header is completely ignored
enable_auth_in_advance: If set to true, authentication can be done in advance, i.e. before the server requests authentication. This reduces the number of messages exchanged with the server, but may be an additional security risk.
