Digest authentication offers the same features as basic authentication but involves a different way of transmitting the authentication credential. The authentication credential passes through MD5 hashing process per [RFC-1321].
The result is not feasible to decrypt it.

Additional information is added to the password before hashing so that the password hash can not be captured and reused to impersonate the true user.

E.g. HTTP v1.1 employs digest authentication service.
