I am writting an open source Jabber Server (
http://sourceforge.net/projects/rjserver/ ) and I writting to see if
anyone can answer a few questions about how the Jabber Protocol is
sposed to work with SASL and how more of the ins and outs of the
1) Can the User Registration that is built into SASL be used to join a
Jabber Server or must the Jabber Registration system (as stated in
http://www.jabber.org/protocol/registration.html ) be used? I ask
because SASL has built in registration and authentication, and I am
unsure how to tap into the SASL password files.
2) How felxable should a server be in the order of receved elements?
Should a server be hard line on receving elements in the order listed,
or should it be more open in the ordering, so long as all required
elements are there?
3) Has anyone else thought that all servers should require SASL
encription level of at least 40 (read 40 bit encription), and that with
this there should be an addition to Jabber:Server:DialBack and SASL so
that Server to server comunications are encripted, because what is the
good of a message that is only encripted some of the time.
