The first comment in chapter 17 HTTP authentication states that you can easily add encryption to HTTP authentication by using the crypt() function.  Not so.  PHP runs server side so anything entered at the prompt on the client side must still travel over the network unencrypted.  Thus, this person's comment is fallacious and should be removed.
