  Description     : secure remote password implementation

Description
-----------

This package provides an implementation of the Secure Remote Password 
protocol (SRP). SRP is a cryptographically strong authentication 
protocol for password-based, mutual authentication over an insecure 
network connection.

Unlike other common challenge-response autentication protocols, such as 
Kerberos and SSL, SRP does not rely on an external infrastructure of 
trusted key servers or certificate management. Instead, SRP server 
applications use verification keys derived from each user's password to 
determine the authenticity of a network connection.

SRP provides mutual-authentication in that successful authentication 
requires both sides of the connection to have knowledge of the user's 
password. If the client side lacks the user's password or the server 
side lacks the proper verification key, the authentication will fail.

Unlike SSL, SRP does not directly encrypt all data flowing through the 
authenticated connection. However, successful authentication does result 
in a cryptographically strong shared key that can be used for 
symmetric-key encryption.
