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.
