This document describes the Argon2 memory-hard function for password
hashing and proof-of-work applications. We provide an implementer-
oriented description together with sample code and test vectors. The
purpose is to simplify adoption of Argon2 for Internet protocols.
This document is a product of the Crypto Forum Research Group (CFRG)
in the IRTF.
Working Group Summary
CFRG history was mostly uneventful. After adopting the document
it was presented in several face-to-face CFRG meetings.
Crypto Review Panel reviews were solicited in June 2017.
2 reviews were provided by Russ Housley and Stanislav Smyshlyaev.
Comments from these reviews were addressed in -03.
Following revisions of the draft addressed review comments from
the document shepherd and various ID-nits.
