Internet-Draft   HTTP Mutual Authentication: algorithms        July 2014

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies some algorithms for Mutual authentication
   protocol for Hyper-Text Transport Protocol (HTTP)
   [I-D.ietf-httpauth-mutual].  The algorithms are based on so-called
   "Augumented Password-based Authenticated Key Exchange" (Augumented
   PAKE) techniques.  In particular, it uses one of three key exchange
   algorithm defined in the ISO 11770-4: "Key management - Mechanisms
   based on weak secrets" [ISO.11770-4.2006] as a basis.

   In very brief summary, the Mutual authentication protocol exchanges
