GNU SASL 1.8.0 - new stable branch

Item posted by Simon Josefsson <jas> on Mon 28 May 2012 08:01:05 PM UTC.

GNU SASL is a modern C library that implement the standard network security protocol Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL). The framework itself and a couple of common SASL mechanisms are implemented. GNU SASL can be used by network applications for IMAP, SMTP, XMPP and similar protocols to provide authentication services. Support for the more recent SCRAM-SHA-1, OPENID20 and SAML20 mechanisms is included.

Brief changes compared to 1.6.x:

  • SAML20 support following RFC 6595.
  • OPENID20 support following RFC 6616.
  • Added SMTP server examples (for e.g., SCRAM, SAML20, OPENID20).
  • Various cleanups, portability and other bug fixes.
  • The API and ABI is fully backwards compatible with version 1.6.x.
