Takes $password, $created and $nonce, and returns a boolean value representing whether the authentication succeeded.
If both $nonce and $created are specified, validate $password against:
encode_base64(sha1( $nonce . $created . sha1_hex( "$username:$realm:$server_pass" ) ))
where $server_pass is the md5_hex(password) digest stored in the database, $created is in ISO time format, and $nonce is a random string no longer than 32 bytes.← Back to index
