   HTTP provides a simple challenge-response authentication mechanism
   that may be used by a server to challenge a client request and by a
   client to provide authentication information.  This document defines
   the HTTP Digest Authentication scheme that can be used with the HTTP
   authentication mechanism.

Editorial Note (To be removed by RFC Editor before publication)
