sasl_server_start - Begin an authentication negotiation SYNOPSIS
#include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_server_start(sasl_conn_t * conn, const char * mech, const char * clientin, unsigned * clientinlen, const char ** serverout, unsigned * serveroutlen); DESCRIPTION
sasl_server_start() begins the authentication with the mechanism specified with mech. This fails if the mechanism is not supported. SASL_OK is returned if the authentication is complete and the user is authenticated. SASL_CONTINUE is returned if one or more steps are still required in the authentication. All other return values indicate failure. conn is the SASL context for this connection mech is the mechanism name that the client requested clientin is the client initial response, NULL if the protocol lacks support for client-send-first or if the other end did not have an ini- tial send. Note that no initial client send is distinct from an initial send of a null string, and the protocol MUST account for this dif- ference. clientinlen is the length of initial response serverout is created by the plugin library. It is the initial server response to send to the client. This is allocated/freed by the library and it is the job of the client to send it over the network to the server. Also protocol specific encoding (such as base64 encoding) must needs to be done by the server. serveroutlen is set to the length of initial server challenge RETURN VALUE
sasl_server_start returns an integer which corresponds to one of the SASL errorcodes. SASL_OK indicates that authentication is completed successfully. SASL_CONTINUE indicates success and that there are more steps needed in the authentication. All other return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the authentication session should be quit. CONFORMING TO

sasl_server_step - perform a step in the server authentication negotiation SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lsasl [ library ... ] #include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_server_step(sasl_conn_t *conn, const char *clientin, unsigned clientinlen, const char **serverout, unsigned *serveroutlen); DESCRIPTION
The sasl_server_step() performs a step in the authentication negotiation. PARAMETERS
conn The SASL context for this connection. clientin The data given by the client. The data is decoded if the protocol encodes requests that are sent over the wire. clientinlen The length of clientin. serverout Set by the library and sent to the client. serveroutlen RETURN VALUES
sasl_server_step() returns an integer that corresponds to a SASL error code. ERRORS
SASL_OK The whole authentication completed successfully. SASL_CONTINUE The call to sasl_server_step() was successful, and at least one more step is needed for the authentication. All other error codes indicate an error situation that you must handle, or you should quit the authentication session. See sasl_errors(3SASL) for information on SASL error codes. ATTRIBUTES
