<TITLE>Cyrus SASL library</TITLE>
<h1>Cyrus SASL library, version 2</h1>

<p> SASL (Simple Authentication Security Layer) is an Internet
standards-track method for remote computers to authenticate.  The
Cyrus SASL library makes supporting various SASL mechanisms easy for
both client and server writers.

<P>The Cyrus project is the implementation of an enterprise mail
system by the Carnegie Mellon University Computing Services Department.
We are interested in scalable, easy to administer systems.
