Detailed Description

Global authentication controls.

Chirp has a flexible authentication system that allows users to identify themselves to severs in many different ways. This module controls which methods are currently active.

Most programs should call auth_register_all to enable all modes by default, and only call auth_register_byname to choose a specific method when directed by the user with the -a command line option.
