Sasl

The SASL module allows you to authenticate to an IRC network via SASL.

This module can be used with the cert module to support the EXTERNAL SASL mechanism. You can do this by setting up a certificate with cert and then setting the module to use the EXTERNAL mechanism. `/msg *sasl mechanism external`.
