On the Internet, it is common practice to permit anonymous access to
various services.  Traditionally, this has been done with a plain-text
password mechanism using "anonymous" as the user name and using optional
trace information, such as an email address, as the password.  As
plain-text login commands are not permitted in new IETF protocols, a
new way to provide anonymous login is needed within the context of the
Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) framework.  [STANDARDS
