Does anyone know of any ready made plugins available to canonicalize
(c14n) usernames on the SASL layer?
What I would be looking for was a plugin which looks up and sets an
authz (authorization id) from LDAP given a username.
What I want to achieve is this:
I have a Cyrus IMAPd server, which is using SASL (saslauthd, to be
exact) to handle user logins. I want a user to be able to login using a
nickname and I would expect such a plugin to do a lookup against LDAP to
find that user's real userid (=mailbox name) and set it as the
By default, IMAPd assumes authorization id == authentication id and some
IMAP clients don't have a proper way to specify different authentication
and authorization id.
If there was such a plugin, some hints on how to configure such a plugin
would be nice as well.
Are SASL plugins (auxprop, canon_user) compatible auth saslauthd at all?
