>                 Key: PROTON-152
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-152
>             Project: Qpid Proton
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: proton-c
>    Affects Versions: 0.2
>            Reporter: Ted Ross
>            Priority: Blocker
>              Labels: security
> 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.
