Password-Authenticated Key Exchanges (PAKE) are authenticated key exchange protocols where the long term secret is a (low entropy) password. I.e., it's a 2-party protocol with at least one party using a password to authenticate themselves to the other party. A PAKE guarantees, that the parties establish a shared session key if and only if authentication was successful. Due to the low entropy of passwords, it's crucial to prevent offline dictionary attacks.
