SASL is a method for adding authentication support to connection-based
protocols. To use SASL, a protocol includes a command for identifying and
authenticating a user to a server and for optionally negotiating protection
of subsequent protocol interactions. If its use is negotiated, a security
layer is inserted between the protocol and the connection.

This package contains a SASL plugin that perform a crude check on a SAML
authentication assertion. The assertion signature and date are verified,
and access is granted on behalf ot the user taked for a onfigurable

The only protection against replay attacks is the assertion validity dates
checks, this authentication is therefore secure only if the SAML
authentication assertion remains secret. The assertion has the same role
as a web cookie used for authentication.

Here is a PHP example of LDAP binding using www/ap2-auth-mellon:
$userid = $_SERVER["REMOTE_USER"];
if (ldap_sasl_bind($ds, NULL, $saml_msg, "SAML",
NULL, $userid, NULL, "none") == FALSE) {
printf("ldap_sasl_bind() failed: %s", ldap_error($ds));
