@Reid no, it's not, but what would it change?

comment Reversing SHA1 (don't know the correct term)
pad(X) means it has length of 1 block (20 bytes in case of SHA1). "This sounds like a homework question." - even if, is that bad?

comment What are the requirements of a nonce?
I'm confused: does it mean "nonce actually don't have to be random, but sometimes yes"?

Is there a real source for that? Our professor has given it as a random number on his lection.

So defining it as a random number is wrong? Wikipedia is not a source.

comment Why is SRP not widely used?
@PaŭloEbermann The difference between SRP and SSL is not that much if you have a centralised organisation and can get SSL certificates or a CA for your servers. You'll surely have a centralised directory which you have to authenticate regardless of the resource you are accessing. If you don't want web resources to steal your password you can use OAuth or something so you have to input your password on only one secure site. The advantage of SRP - you don't have to trust the server you authenticate on - doesn't have to much value in good built centralised environment. IMHO.

@PaŭloEbermann I think your post doesn't belong here :)
