This manual page documents briefly the srp-gen command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

srp-gen is a program that generates a password verifier for the Secure Remote Password protocol. The password verifier should be stored as ~/.lsh/srp-verifier on the target (remote) machine on which you want to authenticate using SRP.

For more information about SRP, see the "srp" node of the "Getting started" section of the Lsh manual available via the info system.
