I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-sasl-rfc2222bis-01.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Simple Authentication and Security Layer Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)
	Author(s)	: A. Melnikov
	Filename	: draft-ietf-sasl-rfc2222bis-01.txt
	Pages		: 18
	Date		: 2003-6-30
SASL provides a method for adding authentication support with an
optional security layer to connection-based protocols.  It also
describes a structure for authentication mechanisms.  The result is
an abstraction layer between protocols and authentication mechanisms
such that any SASL-compatible authentication mechanism can be used
with any SASL-compatible protocol.
This document describes how a SASL authentication mechanism is
structured, how a protocol adds support for SASL, defines the
protocol for carrying a security layer over a connection, and defines
the EXTERNAL SASL authentication mechanism.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
