Another option would be to use the TACACS+ and/or RADIUS protocols. The
SafeWord server suite supports both, and it would allow further
functionality by being able to use the plain jane TACACS+ and/or RADIUS
servers, which are available in source for linux.

The Safeword server (SASD) does have it's own protocol, but you get as
much functionality using TACACS or Radius. And TACACS+ and Radius are
standard, non-propriatary protocols.
