Add Authentication to HTTP Server

 Hi mates
 
 Has anyone of you already tried to add a simple digest authentication to the http server?
 I´m tryind to do it but seems like the userpass.c file provided by interniche only gives us simple functions that insert user/password combos on a list and check it returning false or true.
 But how to tell to server that, before it serves it´s page, it must send a digest authentication screen requesting user and password, so after the user has informed it on the digest screen, the server could then call the check_permit function provided in userpass.c.
 Any sample code, rule or advice is welcome.
 
 Thank you and best regards
