Technical Summary

   The IANA registry named "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Digest
   Algorithm Values" defines values for digest algorithms used by
   Instance Digests in HTTP.  Instance Digests in HTTP provide a digest,
   also known as a checksum or hash, of an entire representation of the
   current state of a resource.  This draft adds new values to the
   registry and updates previous values.

Working Group Summary

   This is not a WG document, but was reviewed in the HTTPBIS WG.

Document Quality

   This document updates IANA/registration procedures rather than
   affecting an implementable protocol.
