          Efficient Augmented Password-Only Authentication and
                         Key Exchange for IKEv2

Abstract

   This document describes an efficient augmented password-only
   authentication and key exchange (AugPAKE) protocol where a user
   remembers a low-entropy password and its verifier is registered in
   the intended server.  In general, the user password is chosen from a
   small set of dictionary words that allows an attacker to perform
   exhaustive searches (i.e., off-line dictionary attacks).  The AugPAKE
   protocol described here is secure against passive attacks, active
   attacks, and off-line dictionary attacks (on the obtained messages
   with passive/active attacks), and also provides resistance to server
   compromise (in the context of augmented PAKE security).  In addition,
   this document describes how the AugPAKE protocol is integrated into
   the Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2).
