SASL support

It'd be nice to have support for SASL in BitlBee. That'd at least make sure that passwords can't be sniffed (although, in most cases, they can still be replayed).

See for some more information.

Apparently there are scripts for several clients that add support for SASL authentication.

Also, this might be the nicest way to support Kerberos >-)

Hmm, while you're at it, I wonder if it's possible to relay the SASL authentication done by the Jabber module through the IRC connection, for real l33tness. ;-)

Implemented in 58b63de6f1dd84a4923c623dafd548512ecdf054. (Pull request for more context)

Only PLAIN because we need something to decrypt the passwords from storage.

Regarding the few ideas mentioned above:

make sure that passwords can't be sniffed


support Kerberos


relay the SASL authentication done by the Jabber module through the IRC connection


for real l33tness

That's really 2007, 2007-wilmer.
