Disable Cyrus SASL Authentication Daemon (saslauthd) The 'saslauthd' service handles plaintext authentication requests on behalf of the SASL library. The service isolates all code requiring superuser privileges for SASL authentication into a single process, and can also be used to provide proxy authentication services to clients that do not understand SASL based authentication. The 'saslauthd' service can be disabled with the following command: '$ sudo systemctl disable saslauthd'


Parameter:


Technical Mechanism: The 'saslauthd' service provides essential functionality for performing authentication in some directory environments, such as those which use Kerberos and LDAP. For others, however, in which only local files may be consulted, it is not necessary and should be disabled. Fix: # # Disable saslauthd.service for all systemd targets # systemctl disable saslauthd.service # # Stop saslauthd.service if currently running # systemctl stop saslauthd.service
