Journal Journal: SRP6 Outline

Client:
sends username

Server
uses username to look up hashed username:password
generates g, N, b and Salt as random big integers
calculates x = hash(Salt, hashed username:password)
calcualtes v = g ^ x % N
calculates B = ((v * k) + (g ^ b % N)) % N
sends B, g, N, Salt
