Keith Wall commented on QPIDJMS-150:
------------------------------------

Thanks for the initial comments.  I've added some unit tests based on known-good data taken
from the RFCs.

> The SCRAM SHA-1 and 256 SASL mechanisms https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5802 offer better
security than older SASL implementations. In particular the authentication information stored
in the authentication database is not sufficient to impersonate the client if the database
were to be stolen.
> (The Java Broker already supports these mechanisms. The intention is to switch to recommend
SCRAM instead of CRAM-MD5 shortly.  One barrier to making this switch is the absence of support
in the client).
