      Description

      We currently have an internal IRC server that we use day to day. It may be best if this moved on to the forge as a forge service. Perhaps with enhanced security features.

          I've deployed a modified version of ngircd to the forge. It accepts ssl connections on port 6667 and authenticates users against Crowd. It restricts nicks used so that they must at least begin with the user id. This allows the same user to log in multiple times with different nicks but still other folks some level of protection against impersonations.

          What's needed now is implementing some kind of channel security so that some channels can be restricted to user in a given crowd group.

          Forge IRC is now in production and only allowing employees to login so per channel security is not that big an issue.
