The barriers to ubiquitous strong cryptography for low volume applications on the world wide web are analyzed. We propose a cryptographic protocol heavily influenced by the Difie-Hellman and ElCamal protocols which has the virtue of allowing secure communication with no previous key distribution, no random number generation on the browser side and no violation of the laws protecting intellectual property. A simpk extension allows for password encrypted signatures. We make a proposal whose… Expand
