SYNOPSIS

SUMMARY

       htdigest  is  used  to create and update the flat-files used to store usernames, realm and

       server can be restricted to just the users listed in the files created by htdigest.

       necessary to configure digest authentication in httpd see the Apache manual, which is part
       of the Apache distribution or can be found at http://httpd.apache.org/.
