The Firewall Toolkit wrapper ("netacl")
doesn't do anything to authenticate users. I'm not
sure that Wietse's tcp wrappers do either, unless
you're mistaking ident for authentication.
If you want to authenticate stuff like
incoming telnet/rlogin/ftp, using handheld calculators
or whatever, then the toolkit's proxies are a good way
to go. If what you're looking for is a tcp wrapper with
logging, they're more or less the same kind of thing --
the TIS version is more minimalist and less functional,
which I consider a feature.
