NAME

       sfs_srp_params - default parameters for SRP protocol

DESCRIPTION

       Specifies a ‘‘strong prime’’ and a generator for use in the SRP
       protocol.  SFS ships with a particular set of parameters because
       generating new ones can take a considerable amount of CPU time.  You
       can replace these parameters with randomly generated ones using the
       sfskey srpgen -b bits command.

       Note that SRP parameters can afford to be slightly shorter than Rabin
       public keys, both because SRP is based on discrete logs rather than
       factoring, and because SRP is used for authentication, not secrecy.

       The format of the file is a single line of the form:

       N=0xModulus,g=0xGenerator

       Modulus is a prime number, represented in hexadecimal, which must
       satisfy the property that (Modulus-1)/2 is also prime.  Generator is an
       element of the multiplicative group of integers modulo Modulus such
       that Generator has order (Modulus-1)/2.
