sivtest is a utility that allows you to authenticate to a MANAGESIEVE server and interac-
tively issue commands to it. Once authenticated you may issue any MANAGESIEVE command by
simply typing it in. It is capable of multiple SASL authentication mechanisms and handles
encryption layers transparently. This utility is often used for testing the operation of a
timsieved server. Also those developing MANAGESIEVE clients find it useful.
Enable TLS. keyfile contains the TLS public and private keys. Specify "" to nego-
tiate a TLS encryption layer but not use TLS authentication.
Port to connect to. If left off this defaults to sieve as defined in /etc/services.
Force sivtest to use mechanism for authentication. If not specified the strongest
authentication mechanism supported by the server is chosen.
Userid to use for authentication; defaults to the current user. This is the userid
whose password or credentials will be presented to the server for verification.
Userid to use for authorization; defaults to the current user. This is the userid
whose identity will be assumed after authentication. NOTE: This is only used with
SASL mechanisms that allow proxying (e.g. PLAIN, DIGEST-MD5).
-k num Minimum protection layer required.
-l num Maximum protection layer to use (0=none; 1=integrity; etc). For example if you are
using the KERBEROS_V4 authentication mechanism specifying 0 will force sivtest to
not use any layer and specifying 1 will force it to use the integrity layer. By
default the maximum supported protection layer will be used.
Specify the realm to use. Certain authentication mechanisms (e.g. DIGEST-MD5) may
require one to specify the realm.
Pipe file into connection after authentication.
-n num Number of authentication attempts; default = 1. The client will attempt to do
SSL/TLS session reuse and/or fast reauth (e.g. DIGEST-MD5), if possible.
-c Enable challenge prompt callbacks. This will cause the OTP mechanism to ask for
the the one-time password instead of the secret pass-phrase (library generates the
-i Don't send an initial client response for SASL mechanisms, even if the protocol
Set the SASL option to value.
-v Verbose. Print out more information than usual.
