Re: XSSO? How to communicate to XSSO/PAM external authentication info?

Although it's not the same thing, there is the Cyrus SASL
library which provides a "switch" for different authentication
and security mechanisms. It does support GSS-API, as well as
negotiation of a suitable SASL mechanism.

Probably. I would too be interested in contributing to a
such a project. Given that there are already open source
(monolithic) GSS-API mechanism implementations (MIT
Kerberos, Heimdal, SESAME) it should be a matter of (a)
implementing SPnego and (b) implementing a "switch".
