In this paper we present a password authentication protocol over untrusted networks. This password authentication protocol stores user password in a non-plaintext equivalent therefore a breached database would not reveal enough information about the user password. This protocol relies on the strength of discrete logarithms with the Schnorr Signature Scheme and also goes further to satisfy all properties of a zero knowledge proof system.
