Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Security
Assemblies:   System.ServiceModel.Primitives (in System.ServiceModel.Primitives.dll)

public sealed class HttpDigestClientCredential

The HttpDigestClientCredential type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAllowedImpersonationLevelGets or sets the level of impersonation that the client allows with the client credential provided.
Public propertyClientCredentialGets or sets the network credential to be used for digest-based authentication.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Digest authentication verifies that both parties to a communication know a shared secret (a password). Authentication is done without sending the password in the clear. Digest authentication is based on a challenge-response paradigm. The Digest scheme challenges using a nonce ("number used once") value. The response must contain a checksum of the user name, the password, the nonce value, the HTTP method, and the requested URI.
