See manager.c for the full details, but it's essentially this:

Send "Action: Challenge" and "AuthType: MD5".  You'll receive back a
"Challenge:  somestring".  Create a MD5 hash of the somestring challenge
and your password.  Send "Action: Login", "AuthType: MD5",
"Username: myuser", "Key: md5hash".


P.S.  No, I'm not a guru, I just read the source.
