             Summary: SASL architecture does not support security layers
                 Key: PROTON-152
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-152
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.2
            Reporter: Ted Ross
            Priority: Blocker

SASL can optionally insert a security layer in the data stream for a 
connection.  The security layer encrypts/signs/decrypts the data stream.  In 
this way it is architecturally similar to SSL:  It performs a handshake 
in-the-clear and then inserts itself into the stream to provide link security.

Without this support, mechanisms like GSSAPI (Kerberos5) cannot be used.
