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

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 name should match what appears in the Networks list (step #2, below). This guide assumes that they are both named Rizon.
The generated .pem file should be in ~/.config/hexchat/certs/Rizon.pem for Linux/Unix users, and %appdata%\HexChat\certs\Rizon.pem for Windows users.

  1. HexChatNetwork List (or press Ctrl + S) for the Network List dialogue box.
  2. In the Networks list, find and select Rizon item, then press Edit...
  3. As Login method select SASL EXTERNAL (cert)      
  4. Press Close then Connect

If the file exists, all your subsequent connections to Rizon network will use this certificate.
