SASL is a modern way of authentication in IRC, solving problems such as transmitting passwords as plain text (see the DH-BLOWFISH mechanism) and fully identifying before joining any channels.
Cinch automatically detects which mechanisms are supported by the IRC network and uses the best available one.
In order to use SASL one has to set the username and password options as follows:
configure do |c|
c.sasl.username = "foo"
c.sasl.password = "bar"
