CRAM-MD5 & Digest-MD5 usage
I am need of some CRAM-MD5 advice please. I know, I know, the admin guide
states that CRAM-MD5 is deprecated in favor of DIGEST-MD5. However, I must
use CRAM-MD5 because it is was my project supports.
Question 1: Is the setup/config for SASL CRAM-MD5 similar to DIGEST-MD5?
The admin guide has no info on CRAM-MD5 and the mailing list archives are
scant too. But if it's similar to DIGEST-MD5 ...
Question 2: Any setup/config hints?
Question 3: What's 'better' ... secrets stored in sasldb or secrets stored
in LDAP directory (using userPassword)? DIGEST-MD5 section in admin guide
mentions this but I don't know how it relates to CRAM-MD5.
