RE: InitializeSecurityContext() and Digest in C++

Hi Chuck,

Based on the discussion with our SSPI architecture, Digest should be going
away - specially that IE is moving to wdigest. It is client side only and
also has some non-RFC issues. Also, Digest does not use cached credentials
so it is not windows logo certified. Digest (I think) works only when
clear text credentials are available.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Jeffrey Tan
