Title : PPP EAP SRP-SHA1 Authentication Protocol
Author(s) : J. Carlson
Filename : draft-ietf-pppext-eap-srp-02.txt
Pages : 15

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)  provides a standard method for
transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP
also defines an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) 
framework to allow the use of multiple authentication mechanisms
without fixing the mechanism to be used during initial link
negotiation. This document defines an authentication mechanism for
EAP called SRP-SHA1, and allows the use of the Secure Remote Password
(SRP)  protocol as a PPP link authentication method.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
