Identify the authentication mechanisms that are built into the HTTP specification.
(Select two)
a Basic
b Client-Cert
c FORM
d Digest
e Client-Digest
f HTTPS
Answers: a and d

what's the meaning of DIGEST? HTTP-DIGEST?
what's the meaing of Client-Digest?
are Client-Cert = HTTPS?
if DIGEST = HTTP-DIGEST, according to manning, it's just supported by IE5 and is not built into the HTTP specification.

DIGEST is an authentication mechanism thats part of HTTP specification.

what's the meaing of Client-Digest?
I haven't heard of this one, and I don't think there is an authentication mechanism like this.


are Client-Cert = HTTPS?
FORM authentication mechanism uses HTTPS to send user credentials in a secured manner. You got to do configuration setting's in your server to use HTTPS.

if DIGEST = HTTP-DIGEST, according to manning, it's just supported by IE5 and is not built into the HTTP specification.
This is NOT correct I suppose. check HFSJ book.
