Hi,

This is our new mailing list for discussing the project described as a
GSoC 2011 "idea" as follows:

http://openwall.info/wiki/ideas

# New password hashing method for servers (full scope exceeds one summer,
so the task may be split in two or three)

    * New crypt(3) flavor using concepts of scrypt (not only iterations,
but also parallelism and memory), optionally making use of AES-NI
    * GPU or/and FPGA accelerated password hashing on servers (to better
compete with similarly accelerated or distributed offline password hash
cracking), optional local parameterization on specific hardware
(parameter unreadable from host OS)

I suggest that we start by discussing "high-level" stuff (such as the
"context" for this project: what already exists and why there's room for
something new), then go into detail.

Alexander
