                 Mutual Authentication Protocol for HTTP

Abstract

   This document specifies an authentication scheme for the Hypertext    Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that is referred to as either the Mutual    authentication scheme or the Mutual authentication protocol.  This    scheme provides true mutual authentication between an HTTP client and    an HTTP server using password-based authentication.  Unlike the Basic    and Digest authentication schemes, the Mutual authentication scheme    specified in this document assures the user that the server truly    knows the user's encrypted password.
