Yeah, I leafed through the public comment draft. Near as I could
tell, the majority of the pages came from additional discussions about
other Auth mechanisms. Appendix A looked unchanged to me.

Also worth noting perhaps that the long-awaited revision to NIST SP 800-63
(800-63 Rev 1) has been published this month, see

As before Appendix A has a lot of material about password entropy. I
don't know if it differs substantially from previous versions of 800-63.
Still no spreadsheet as far as I can tell. But the overall document has
gone from 54 to 109 pages, so it must be twice as good.
