I have added SSL/TLS support to ngircd.
- incoming ssl/tls client and server connections
- outgoing server connections (server links)
What does not work yet:
- (X509) Certificate support.
The patch is here (created against ngircd CVSHEAD):
Alternatively, you can grab ngircd-ssl from svn:
svn co svn://svn.strlen.de/fw/ngircd-ssl/branches/ngircd-ssl-0.1.X
You need to pass either --with-openssl or --with-gnutls
to the configure script. A sample config file is included in the docs
Please test and let me know if it works on your platform.
I have a semi-closed system of 1500 users that I would like to offer IRC
services to - but only if they authenticate against a custom MySQL table
I'd like to call a perl script that will do the lookup of a given identity &
password pair, and return a 0 exit code for success, and a non-zero code for
failure to authenticate.
So my question to the ngIRCd community & author is whether there are plans, or
interest in an authentication hook being added. And, whether this kind of
approach would be incompatible with standards-compliant IRC clients.
