sasl_decode(3SASL)			      Simple Authentication Security Layer Library Functions				sasl_decode(3SASL)

NAME
sasl_decode - decode data received SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lsasl [ library ... ] #include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_decode(sasl_conn_t *conn, const char *input, unsigned inputlen, const char **output, unsigned *outputlen); DESCRIPTION
Use the sasl_decode() interface to decode data received. After authentication, call this function on all data received. The data is decoded from encrypted or signed form to plain data. If no security lay is negotiated, the output is identical to the input. Do not give sasl_decode() more data than the negotiated maxbufsize. See sasl_getprop(3SASL). sasl_decode() can complete successfully although the value of outputlen is zero. If this is the case, wait for more data and call sasl_decode() again. PARAMETERS
conn The SASL connection context. input Data received. inputlen The length of input output The decoded data. output must be allocated or freed by the library. outputlen The length of output. RETURN VALUES
sasl_decode() returns an integer that corresponds to a SASL error code. ERRORS
SASL_OK The call to sasl_decode() was successful. See sasl_errors(3SASL) for information on SASL error codes. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
sasl_getprop - get a SASL property SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lsasl [ library ... ] #include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_getprop(sasl_conn_t *conn, int propnum, const void **pvalue); DESCRIPTION
Use the sasl_getprop() interface to get the value of a SASL property. For example, after successful authentication, a server may want to know the authorization name. Similarly, a client application may want to know the strength of the security level that was negotiated. PARAMETERS
conn The SASL connection context. propnum The identifier for the property requested. pvalue The value of the SASL property. This value is filled in upon a successful call. Possible SASL values include: SASL_USERNAME A pointer to a null-terminated user name. SASL_SSF The security layer security strength factor. If the value of SASL_SSF is 0, a call to sasl_encode() or sasl_decode() is unnecessary. SASL_MAXOUTBUF The maximum size of output buffer returned by the selected security mechanism SASL_DEFUSERREALM Server authentication realm used. SASL_GETOPTCTX The context for getopt() callback. SASL_IPLOCALPORT Local address string. SASL_IPREMOTEPORT Remote address string. SASL_SERVICE Service passed on to sasl_*_new(). SASL_SERVERFQDN Server FQDN passed on to sasl_*_new(). SASL_AUTHSOURCE Name of authentication source last used. Useful for failed authentication tracking. SASL_MECHNAME Active mechanism name, if any. SASL_PLUGERR Similar to sasl_errdetail(). ERRORS
SASL_OK The call to sasl_getprop() was successful. See sasl_errors(3SASL) for information on SASL error codes. ATTRIBUTES
