confusion about imaps
I can connect from my mutt client box to my dovecot server after mkcert.sh has been run and the cert and key are in the correct location(according to dovecot config file) and "enable_plaintext_authentciation = no" is also in the dovecot.conf. Does this mean that user authentication is being performed by SSL or just that SSL is protecting an interior protocol that performs it's own authentication?.
If i run:
#openssl s_client -quiet -connect my_dovecot_server.domain:993
verify return:1 * OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE AUTH=PLAIN AUTH=LOGIN] Dovecot ready.
Thank you very much for shedding some light on the subject
