Abstract

The Application Bridging for Federated Access Beyond Web (ABFAB) document [ABFAB-ARCH] describes an architecture for providing federated access management to applications using the Generic Security Service Application Programming Interface (GSS-API) [RFC2743] and Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) [RFC4422]. This specification provides the core mechanism for bringing federated authentication to these applications.

      A GSS-API Mechanism for the Extensible Authentication Protocol

Abstract

   This document defines protocols, procedures, and conventions to be    employed by peers implementing the Generic Security Service    Application Program Interface (GSS-API) when using the Extensible    Authentication Protocol mechanism.  Through the GS2 family of    mechanisms defined in RFC 5801, these protocols also define how    Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) applications use the    Extensible Authentication Protocol.
