 * <p>The basic version of the Diffie-Hellman key agreement is described in the
 * Handbook of Applied Cryptography [HAC] as follows:</p>
 * <ul>
 *    <li>An appropriate prime p and generator g of Z<sub>p</sub><sup>*</sup>
 *    (2 &lt;= g &lt;= p-2) are selected and published.</li>
 *    <li>A and B each send the other one message over an open channel; as a
 *    result, they both can then compute a shared secret key K which they can
 *    use to protect their future communication.</li>
 *    <li>A chooses a random secret x, 1 &lt;= x &lt;= p-2, and sends B message
 *    (1) which is g^x mod p.</li>
 *    <li>B chooses a random secret y, 1 &lt;= y &lt;= p-2, and sends A message
 *    (2) which is g^y mod p.</li>
 *    <li>B receives message (1) and computes the shared key as K = (g^x)^y mod
 *    p.</li>
 *    <li>A receives message (2) and computes the shared key as K = (g^y)^x mod
 *    p.</li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>RFC-2631 describes a <i>Static-Static Mode</i> of operations with
 * Diffie-Hellman keypairs as follows:</p>
 * <pre>
 * "In Static-Static mode, both the sender and the recipient have a
   static (and certified) key pair. Since the sender's and recipient's
   keys are therefore the same for each message, ZZ will be the same for
   each message. Thus, partyAInfo MUST be used (and different for each
   message) in order to ensure that different messages use different
   KEKs. Implementations MAY implement Static-Static mode."
