SASL is a way to identify to your registered nickname during the connection to the network, ensuring that you don't have to manually identify to services. To use SASL you need a registered nickname.

Configuring your client to use SASL

Rizon supports both PLAIN and EXTERNAL SASL mechanisms. Instructions for configuring SASL PLAIN can be found below:

Irssi

Note: You need Irssi version >=0.8.18 to use SASL

/NETWORK ADD -sasl_mechanism plain -sasl_username <nickname> -sasl_password <password> rizon

WeeChat

/set irc.server.rizon.addresses irc.rizon.net/6697
/set irc.server.rizon.sasl_mechanism plain
/set irc.server.rizon.sasl_username username (nick)
/set irc.server.rizon.sasl_password password

HexChat

As login method select SASL (username + password). In the password field enter your nickserv password.

ZNC

Please refer to the ZNC wiki for instructions.

mIRC

  1. ToolsOptions... (or press Alt + O) to open the mIRC Options dialogue box.
  2. Go to ConnectServers.
  3. Under IRC Servers:, find and select Rizon group, and press Add

  1. Press OK then Select and (re)connect.

SASL EXTERNAL

To configure SASL EXTERNAL first set up CertFP, then set the following settings in your client:

Irssi

/NETWORK ADD -sasl_mechanism external rizon
/SERVER ADD -auto -tls -tls_verify -tls_cert ~/.irssi/certs/Rizon.pem -network rizon -port 6697 irc.rizon.net

WeeChat

/set irc.server.rizon.addresses irc.rizon.net/6697
/set irc.server.rizon.ssl on
/set irc.server.rizon.ssl_verify on
/set irc.server.rizon.ssl_cert %h/ssl/Rizon.pem
/set irc.server.rizon.sasl_mechanism external

HexChat

Note: The pem file should have the same as it appears in the serverlist (Ctrl+S). The generated .pem file you generated should be in ~/.config/hexchat/certs/Rizon.pem for Linux/Unix users, and %appdata%\HexChat\certs\Rizon.pem for Windows users. As login method select SASL EXTERNAL (cert). If the file exists all your subsequent connections to the network will use the certificate.
