The Logical Domains Manager implements an XMPP server which can communicate with numerous available XMPP client applications and libraries. The LDoms Manager uses the following security mechanisms:
Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure the communication channel between the client and itself.
Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) for authentication. PLAIN is the only SASL mechanism supported. You must send in a user name and password to the server, so it can authorize you before allowing monitoring or management operations.
