This memo defines several new ciphersuites for the Transport Layer
Security (TLS) protocol to support certificateless, secure
authentication using only a simple, low-entropy password.  The
exchange is called "TLS-PWD".  The ciphersuites are all based on an
authentication and key exchange protocol, named "dragonfly", that is
resistant to offline dictionary attacks.
