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
