Simon Wilkison wrote this SASL-adapter to implementing the Authen::SASL interface.

It is used to do GSSAPI (Kerberos5) authentication when using Authen::SASL-enabeled Perlmodules like

  • RFC 2222 Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)

    describes in section 7.2. the integration of GSSAPI into SASL

  • RFC 2251 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (v3)

    describes how SASL integrates into the bind request.

  • RFC 2829Authentication Methods for LDAP

    describes SASL integration in LDAP, but how this is done with GSSAPI
