This document defines a profile of the Simple Authentication and
Security Layer (SASL) for the Post Office Protocol (POP3). This
extension allows a POP3 client to indicate an authentication
mechanism to the server, perform an authentication protocol
exchange, and optionally negotiate a security layer for subsequent
protocol interactions during this session.
This document seeks to consolidate the information related to POP3
AUTH into a single document. To this end, this document obsoletes
and replaces RFC 1734, and updates the information contained in
Section 6.3 of RFC 2449. [STANDARDS TRACK]
