DigestAuth provides HTTP Digest Authentication (RFC 2617) for
Zope. More precisely, it provides a Digest Authentication Crumbler
which works similar to Shane's CookieCrumbler: it turns HTTP digest
authentication info provided by the client into HTTP basic
authentication info and thereby allows to use user folders expecting
basic authentication with the much more secure digest authentication.

Digest authentication (at least the implemented crumbler) requires
that the password is available in cleartext. It must not be encrypted.
