DJabberd::SASL::AuthenSASL − SASL Negotiation using Authen::SASL
This plugin provides straightforward support for SASL negotiations inside DJabberd using Authen::SASL (Authen::SASL::Perl, for now). It compliments the now deprecated iq-auth authentication ( XEP−0078 ).
The recommended usage is to use STARTTLS and SASL-PLAIN.
Mechanisms PLAIN LOGIN DIGEST−MD5
Only PLAIN LOGIN and DIGEST−MD5 mechanisms are supported for now (same than in Authen::SASL. DIGEST−MD5 only supports "auth" qop (quality of protection), so it’s strongly advised to throw TLS into the mix, and not solely rely on DIGEST−MD5 (as opposed to "auth−int" and "auth−conf").
