The IANA registry named "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Digest
Algorithm Values" defines values for digest algorithms used by
Instance Digests in HTTP.  Instance Digests in HTTP provide a digest,
also known as a checksum or hash, of an entire representation of the
current state of a resource.  This document adds new values to the
registry and updates previous values.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
