Web Service Authentication

I've developed a web service that I want to require the client to pass a username / pwd to invoke the web service. The web service will run on a server that's part of an Active Directory windows domain. The username / password will exist in the Active Directory domain. I'm thinking that I want to use "Digest Authentication" as the authentication provision for the service based on the requirements above. Does anyone disagree or see a more suitable authentication provision.

Can anyone provide some code examples of the call on the client (and any code needed in the Web Service) to authenticate based on "Digest Authentication"
