           Additional Hash Algorithms for HTTP Instance Digests

Abstract

   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.
