Several protocols borrow the authentication mechanisms from the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, HTTP. This document specifies an extension to RADIUS that allows a RADIUS client in an HTTP-style server, upon reception of a request, retrieve and compute Digest authentication information from a RADIUS server. Additionally, a scenario describing the authentication of a user emitting an HTTP-style request is provided.
