All networks running on charybdis or forks of charybdis, such as ircd-seven (the IRCd that freenode uses), support SASL authentication. This is invoked by using the CAP commands. Such support has been previously discussed on IRC, and Gryllida has created a plugin for this. However, the plugin is rather hacky. This bug has several components: 1. Support for the /CAP command (this should be implemented in bug 687798) 2. Actual support for SASL 3. Ways of invoking SASL (URL -> dialog boxes; prefs) 4. If we use prefs, we may also expose this in the Preferences GUI
+1 I'm on freenode and my hostname keeps being shown, the cloak rarely (have it ever?) active in time for Chatzilla auto-rejoining. If SASL can't be implemented, can there be some option to delay the rejoin? Rejoin is a pretty sweet feature, I tried a popular client for a few days, as I kept forgetting to open Chatzilla when FF loaded, and came back because the former wouldn't rejoin on reconnect.
A specification of the SASL protocol can be found at <http://ircv3.atheme.org/extensions/sasl-3.1>. An implementation in the form of a ChatZilla plugin written by Svetlana can be found at <http://freenode.net/sasl/cz_sasl.js>.
Updating description as we use SASL at Mozilla now, too.
Summary: Add SASL authentication support as used on freenode → Add SASL authentication support as used on various networks (Mozilla, Freenode)
