comment What is the name of this kind of protocol
@archie: I agree, these questions really should be merged. We can flag a mod to do that once one of them is closed. (We could do it before that, but then the mods would have to either wait or cast a binding close vote themselves.)

This question is a duplicate of crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/3379/…. This one's more nicely written, though, so I think I'll vote to close the other one.

comment Why don't we use MACs to store passwords?
@Maeher: Specifically, any PRF or, more generally, a privacy-preserving MAC (PP-MAC) would do. Bellare has proven that HMAC is a PRF and/or a PP-MAC as long as the compression function of the underlying hash is one; we currently believe this to be true for e.g. the SHA-2 hashes, but the only reason for that belief is that no-one has managed to break them (and published it) so far.
