Subject: Pass{word,phrase} Authentication for CIPE?
From: David Sainty <dsainty,AT,redhat,DOT,com>

A quick question....

Are there any thoughts on the possibility of adding password or passphrase
style authentication capability to CIPE? i.e. we do not assume that both
CIPE end-points can be trusted. An example scenario: one end-point is a
notebook (with a CIPE key) that has been stolen.

There _are_ work-arounds, but I was wondering about how feasible it would
be (or if it had already been considered) to add passphrase functionality
for CIPE connections, so it was available if desired.

TIA,

David S..
