This document describes an authentication mechanism based on the Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP-6) and how to use it with the authentication frameworks Secure Authentication and Security Layer (SASL), Generic Security Services Application Programming Interface (GSS-API) and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). This mechanism performs mutual authentication and can provide a security layer with replay detection, integrity protection and/or confidentiality protection.
