Description Edward Flick 2004-06-08 12:55:31 UTC
I was just wondering if you guys planned on providing an 'srp' keyword to enable the srp patch for openssh.  SRP ( is a secure method of user/pass authentication which is not susceptible to man in the middle attacks.  Does not pass the password over the line.  And provides both parties a secret key, which can be used for symmetric encryption, as a byproduct of successfull authentication.  It essentially is just a method for the client and server to prove to each other that they have the password.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

The only SRP patch for openssh I could find is over two years old, If there is an updated patch available please provide a link and reopen this bug.
