Telnet Authentication Types

In [RFC1416], a list of authentication types is introduced.  Additions
to the list are registerd by the IANA and documented here.

Type       Description                  Reference
  0        NULL                         [RFC1416]
  1        KERBEROS_V4                  [RFC1416]
  2        KERBEROS_V5                  [RFC1416]
  3        SPX                          [RFC1416]
  4-5      Unassigned                      [IANA]

 11        SSA                           [Schoch]

In [RFC 1411], on the KERBEROS_V4 Telnet Authentication type there are
a set of Suboption Commands.  Additions to the list are registerd by
the IANA and documented here.

Suboption	Command                  Reference
   0            AUTH                     [RFC1411]
