To answer this question it is essential to know how you store user credentials.
To authenticate with a secure authentication mechanism (digest) the server needs
the pass phrase in clear text.

From your description (or lack of) of your problem it seems that you store user
credentials in a way that gives the server no access to the clear text pass phrases.
