No. Both https and mod_auth_digest are ways to send a plain text
password securely. And this plain text password must be sent *every
time*. I'm talking about some server component (e.g. an apache auth
module) which would hand over temporary session tokens/credentials. An
administrator would be able to configure the expiry time of these tokens
(2 hours? 1 day? a week?).
