If you'd like to send us a quick blurb about your interest or
SASL project, we'd be happy to list a pointer here.
- Cyrus SASL is being used by sendmail to support RFC 2554: SMTP Service
Extension for Authentication.
Sendmail will support SMTP AUTH (via SASL) starting in
- The Cyrus IMAP server uses the SASL
library, as of version 1.6.0.
- OpenLDAP uses the SASL
library, as of version 2.0.
- The Cyrus SASL Library is currently being used in the Cyrus ACAP Server.
Apple is using SASL as the basis of it's Open Directory password
authentication services (Password Server) within Mac OS X Server. More
information on Open Directory and its use of SASL can be found
- Here is a document describing the
changes that would need to be made to CVS to get it to use a SASL
based authentication scheme. At this time, Carnegie Mellon is not
pursuing this project, and would be glad to see anybody work on it.
- Carnegie Mellon is evaluating the incorporation of SASL into LPRng. This could
eventually replace all of the existing authentication code, allowing
new authentication modules to be used without the need to modify
An overview of the changes to the LPR protocol required to enable SASL
is here. If you have
any questions or comments, please contact the document's author.
Note: this is a work in progress, and is not finished.
- Another possible SASL project would be the incorporation of a
SASL authentication infrastructure into SSH. This would remove the
need for custom patches to allow alternate authentication mechanisms
to work, such as the AFS/Kerberos
