SASL supports a number of sources for authentication information. For
example it comes with SASLDB which contains commands like saslpasswd2
and sasldblistusers2 that you can use to maintain entries in the DB.
This is the closest it has to our password file. On some operating
systems it can also be connected to an LDAP server.
