This paper describes a simple authentication protocol for use with terminal emulation programs running on small workstations, and communicating with a host computer over a (potentially) insecure network. The technique has the advantage that it requires no more network traffic than would be necessary using a standard user-id/password challenge, and also requires only a small amount of additional intelligence at the workstation. Some management issues are also discussed. The system has been implemented on two host systems and two workstation types.
