comment How secure is the SRP that Blizzard uses to protect passwords?
pepe: John the Ripper now includes support for Blizzards version of SRP :-). @curiousguy: Generally in the five-figure range. Also most HSMs are intended for secure key storage and are pretty slow. You can get crypto accelerators from companies like Cavium, but they're also pretty expensive, you'd need to do custom programming to use them against SRP, and they're designed to speed up particular protocols like TLS and IPsec, so if you're not wanting to do offload of those then things get a lot less fun.
