NAME

Authen::SASL::Perl::GSSAPI - GSSAPI (Kerberosv5) Authentication class

SYNOPSIS

  use Authen::SASL qw(Perl);

  $sasl = Authen::SASL->new( mechanism => 'GSSAPI' );

  $sasl->client_start( $service, $host );

DESCRIPTION

This method implements the client part of the GSSAPI SASL algorithm.

With a valid Kerberos 5 credentials cache (aka TGT) it allows to connect to service@host given as the first two parameters to Authen::SASL's client_start() method.

Please note that this module does not currently implement a SASL security layer following authentication. Unless the connection is protected by other means, such as TLS, it will be vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. If security layers are required, then the Authen::SASL::Cyrus GSSAPI module should be used instead.

CALLBACK

The callbacks used are:

user
