This manual page documents briefly the sasl-sample-client command.

It implements the client part, and the server part is available as sasl-sample-server.
A summary of options is included below. -b Number of bits to use for encryption. min=N minimum number of bits to use (1 => integrity) max=N maximum number of bits to use -e Assume external encryption. ssf=N external mech provides N bits of encryption id=ID external mech provides authentication id ID -m Force use of MECH for security. -f Set security flags. noplain require security vs. passive attacks noactive require security vs. active attacks nodict require security vs. passive dictionary attacks forwardsec require forward secrecy maximum require all security flags passcred attempt to pass client credentials -i Set IP addresses (required by some mechs). local=IP;PORT set local address to IP, port PORT remote=IP;PORT set remote address to IP, port PORT -p Colon-separated search path for mechanisms. -r Realm to use. -s Service name passed to mechanisms. -n Server fully-qualified domain name. -u User (authorization) id to request. -a Id to authenticate as. -d Disable client-send-first. -l Enable server-send-last.
