This is the Cyrus SASL API implementation, version 2.1.
SASL is the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for
adding authentication support to connection-based protocols. To use
SASL, a protocol includes a command for identifying and
authenticating a user to a server and for optionally negotiating
protection of subsequent protocol interactions. If its use is
negotiated, a security layer is inserted between the protocol and the
connection. See RFC 2222 for more information.
Kerberos 5), NTLM, OTP, PLAIN, or LOGIN can be used.
