A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: The SPEKE Password-Based Key Agreement Methods
	Author(s)	: D. Jablon
	Filename	: draft-jablon-speke-01.txt
	Pages		: 25
	Date		: 16-Apr-02
This document describes SPEKE, B-SPEKE, and SRP-4, three methods for
password-based key agreement and authentication.  In the same class
of techniques as SRP-3 [RFC 2945], these methods provide a zero-
knowledge proof of a password and authenticate session keys over an
unprotected channel, with minimal dependency on infrastructure and
proper user behavior.  These methods are compatible with IEEE 1363
and ANSI X9 standards, and are closely aligned with RFC 2945 from an
application perspective.  They use different techniques than earlier
patented alternatives, and provide an expanded set of choices for
convenient and secure personal authentication over the Internet.

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.
