Simon and I both have some security/authentication packages in Debian. I've proposed a group on alioth, pkg-auth, which would be an umbrella for packages like this and potentially others
The team approach that Debian has been introducing brings a step change in oversight over this crucial code, and it will hopefully make it easier for team members to support each other's packages in particular times of need if there is a common workflow, etc.
If other people have packages in this area and would like to get involved, please contact us or use the group joining link on alioth once it becomes active.

New Alioth Project Submitted Project Full Name: Authentication tools packaging project Submitted Description: Various tools, utilities and libraries that are useful for authentication and don't fit within a more specific packaging group. For example, PAM modules, SASL modules, OpenID providers or consumers, two factor authentication algorithms. Specific examples include the simpleid and dynalogin packages that I currently look after. The Alioth admin team will now examine your project submission. You will be notified of their decision.
