Hi

I know there has been some discussion of implementing authentication
over SSL for Z39.50 servers, but I believe I am right to think this has
never been built into the standard, or into any widely used actual
servers. So any authentication tokens used to connect to a Z39.50 server
will be sent in the clear. Can anyone confirm if I'm right to think this?

Thanks for any advice

Graham
