Subject: RE: Update to TS (new formats, SHA2, and other changes)

I sent off a fix to magnum.  He may change what I have given him, but it
'shows' what was going on.  I gave him 3 options.  I am not sure which is
the 'best'.

I also gave him a test vector that would have failed.


Any password where   len(pw)%4 === 1 or 2   if len(pw)%4==0 or 3, it would
load the ipad/opad properly and work. There were no self test that hit that
congruent 1 or 2 length.
