         Adding Support for Salted Password Databases to EAP-pwd

Abstract

   EAP-pwd is an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) method that    utilizes a shared password for authentication using a technique that    is resistant to dictionary attacks.  It includes support for raw keys    and double hashing of a password in the style of Microsoft Challenge    Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (MSCHAPv2), but it does    not include support for salted passwords.  There are many existing    databases of salted passwords, and it is desirable to allow their use    with EAP-pwd.
