NAME

        sfs_srp_params - default parameters for SRP protocol
 

DESCRIPTION

        Specifies a ‘‘strong prime’’ and a generator for use in the SRP proto‐
        col.  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 sat‐
        isfy 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.
