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.
