Description : An implementation of the WHOSON protocol
This software is supposed to work as a "reference
implementation" of the suggested "whoson" internet protocol.
The protocol is expected to be employed on "spam relay
protected" mail servers to allow travelling customers still
send their email via the protected server. For this, a
realtime database of "temporarily trusted" IP addresses is
maintained by a special daemon program. The database may be
filled by, e.g. POP/IMAP servers, and used by SMTP server.
Another possible use of the protocol is to have the database
filled by RADIUS/TACACS server for all dialup clients, and
SMTP server using it to put the user identity into the
"Received" header along with the source IP address.
