Digest using an external database for the Password

I am running version 2.1.12.
I want to use FreeRadius in the following way:
- Use Digest Authentication
- The password is stored in an external database (it has a complicated
schema) that I am connecting to via sql.conf.
- I want to extract the password from this database so that it can be
used in Digest Authentication (SIP – using RFC 4590)
Now I have tested FreeRadius with the radclient using digest authentication
by placing the Cleartext-Password in the users file – this worked.
Is it possible to get the Cleartext-Password (or is it the User-Password)
from my external database through authorize_check_query ?
If so, how do I assign this attribute to the value returned in my query? I
can’t store any information in my external database as I am not allowed to
create any tables
The following query would return the password – can I use it in
authorize_check_query="SELECT password FROM fusion.cdm_credentials WHERE
person_id=(SELECT person_id FROM fusion.cdm_person WHERE
As you can see in the query I have to use password as it is a column entry
in my database
There is a similar mechanism for LDAP where you can use the
Or am I totally off track?
