The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) describes a framework
that allows the use of multiple authentication mechanisms.  This
document defines an authentication mechanism for EAP called EAP-EKE,
based on the Encrypted Key Exchange (EKE) protocol.  This method
provides mutual authentication through the use of a short, easy to
remember password.  Compared with other common authentication
methods, EAP-EKE is not susceptible to dictionary attacks.  Neither
does it require the availability of public-key certificates.  
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
