Appendix A. Changes from RFC 2617
This document introduces the following changes:
o Adds support for two new algorithms, SHA2-256 as mandatory and
SHA2-512/256 as a backup, and defines the proper algorithm
negotitation. The document keeps the MD5 algorithm support but
only for backward compatibility.
o Introduces the username hashing capability and the parameter
associated with that, mainly for privacy reasons.
o Adds various internationalization considerations that impact the
A1 calculation and username and password encoding.
