This document specifies algorithms for use with the Mutual authentication protocol for the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) [RFC8120] (hereafter referred to as the "core specification"). The algorithms are based on augmented password-based authenticated key exchange (augmented PAKE) techniques. In particular, it uses one of three key exchange algorithms defined in ISO 11770-4 ("Information technology - Security techniques - Key management - Part 4: Mechanisms based on weak secrets") [ISO.11770-4.2006] as its basis.
