network security problem - clear text passwords
We have a system on RedHat which is supposed to connect via IMAP (SSL) to an MS Exchange Server. The company is not happy about the transmission of clear text credentials over their LAN - fair enough.
The problem is on the Linux end because the vendor (EMC/Documentum) does not support IMAPS with their product and it wont be supported in the near future.
Is there anything which can be installed on the RedHat that can proxy at that end from IMAP to IMAPS to encrypt/decrypt at the Linux server?
