OPAQUE is an asymmetric password-authenticated key exchange protocol. It allows a client to authenticate to a server using a password, without ever having to expose the plaintext password to the server.
This implementation is based on the Internet Draft for OPAQUE.
Asymmetric Password Authenticated Key Exchange (aPAKE) protocols are designed to provide password authentication and mutually authenticated key exchange without relying on PKI (except during user/password registration) and without disclosing passwords to servers or other entities other than the client machine.
OPAQUE is a PKI-free aPAKE that is secure against pre-computation attacks and capable of using a secret salt.
The API can be found here along with an example for usage.
