Saw this on linuxch-announce - perhaps another system for
interoperability testing....


GSS is an implementation of the Generic Security Service Application
Program Interface (GSS-API).  GSS-API is used by network servers to
provide security services, e.g., to authenticate SMTP/IMAP clients
against SMTP/IMAP servers.  GSS consists of a library, a manual, and a
command line tool for debugging purposes.
                                                                                While written to be flexible with regards to different GSS mechanisms,
the only currently supported mechanism is Kerberos 5 via GNU Shishi.
