KITTEN wasn't an acronym...

A completely uncreative acronym:

 - SAGSS (Simple Authentication and GSS)

Slightly more creative acronym:

 - 2PALS (Two Peer Application Layer Security)

   (This one is kinda neat, if I do say so myself, though it could be
   seen to conflict with TLS.)

Funny WG names in the KITTEN tradition:

 - GASSS (Generic And Simple Security Services)

 - SASSY (not an acronym)

 - anything like TIGER, LION, ... (KITTEN, "growed up")

 - HELLO [KITTy]

I like a fair number (four) of the above, and not just 'cause I came up
with them :)
