This document describes how to use a Generic Security Service
Application Program Interface (GSS-API) mechanism in the Simple
Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) framework.  This is done by
defining a new SASL mechanism family, called GS2.  This mechanism
family offers a number of improvements over the previous "SASL/
GSSAPI" mechanism: it is more general, uses fewer messages for the
authentication phase in some cases, and supports negotiable use of
channel binding.  Only GSS-API mechanisms that support channel
binding and mutual authentication are supported.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
