Description Balint Cristian 2008-07-27 15:44:44 EDT
Description of problem:
  Using cyrus-sasl-sql in conjuction with cyrus-imapd
cannot accept encrypted password fields from SQL.


 I propose to add:
Patch32: cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-checkpw.c.patch

to enhanche password authentication.

  Not sure if upstream aceept this, but many distros pack
using this patch by default, many people wants enclrypted
password in their SQL tables.

Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2009-05-04 04:27:02 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Jan F. Chadima 2009-09-24 05:58:22 EDT
Because this patch will break all of the non-plaintext mechanisms.  If 
we receive a patch which uses a separate property for the crypted 
password, we would probably consider including it. (see http://asg.web.cmu.edu/archive/message.php?mailbox=archive.cyrus-sasl&msg=5683)
