Good catch. This is not true. Pgpool-II has pool_hba.conf. Will fix.
>> "hostssl" connection type is not supported
Again good catch. Will fix.
>> pgpool currently does not support IPv6.
This is true. Pgpool currently does not bind to IPv6 addresses and
cannot listen to IPv6 connections.

Yeah, pgpool does not log authentication even when log_connections is on like PostgreSQL:
15284 2014-05-10 21:10:09 JST LOG: connection authorized: user=t-ishii database=template1
This should be fixed in the future.

Please try -d option of pgpool.
