              Open Password Automation Recipe (OPAR) Protocol
                     draft-bwilliams-kitten-opar-00.txt

Abstract

   This document introduces the Open Password Automation Recipe (OPAR)
   Protocol, a suggested format for providing instructions to password
   managers programmatically that defines the valid construction of a
   password. With password managers becoming integrated into browsers,
   websites should be able to describe the elements of an acceptable
   password programmatically so password management plugins can read
   and automatically generate the best option. Without this, manual
   intervention by the user is required when the password is too long,
   contains invalid characters, or does not meet complexity
   requirements.
