NAME
libsasl - simple authentication and security layer library SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lsasl [ library... ] #include <sasl/sasl.h> #include <sasl/prop.h> #include <sasl/saslutil.h> DESCRIPTION
SASL is a security framework used by connection-oriented network applications primarily for authentication. Another way to describe SASL is that it is a glue layer between a network application and some security mechanisms that allow applications to authenticate each other and provide additional security services such as data encryption. As a glue layer, SASL hides the interface specifics of the security mechanism from the application, which allows greater portability and flexibility as new security mechanisms are implemented. SASL is simi- lar to the GSS-API in that it provides a layer of abstraction between an application and one or more security mechanisms. libsasl provides both an API for applications and an SPI for various plug-ins. To link with this library, specify -lsasl on the cc command line. INTERFACES
The shared object libsasl.so.1 and associated include files provide the public interfaces defined below. The *_t interfaces are function prototypes for callbacks that are defined in the public SASL header files. While libsasl provides default versions for some of the call- backs, this structure allows an application to define its own version of the some of the callback functions. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces. prop_clear prop_dispose prop_dup prop_erase prop_format prop_get prop_getnames prop_new prop_request prop_set prop_setvals sasl_authorize_t sasl_auxprop sasl_auxprop_add_plugin sasl_auxprop_getctx sasl_auxprop_request sasl_canon_user_t sasl_canonuser_add_plugin sasl_chalprompt_t sasl_checkapop sasl_checkpass sasl_client_add_plugin sasl_client_init sasl_client_new sasl_client_plug_init_t sasl_client_start sasl_client_step sasl_decode sasl_decode64 sasl_dispose sasl_done sasl_encode sasl_encode64 sasl_encodev sasl_erasebuffer sasl_errdetail sasl_errors sasl_errstring sasl_getcallback_t sasl_getopt_t sasl_getpath_t sasl_getprop sasl_getrealm_t sasl_getsecret_t sasl_getsimple_t sasl_global_listmech sasl_idle sasl_listmech sasl_log_t sasl_server_add_plugin sasl_server_init sasl_server_new sasl_server_plug_init_t sasl_server_start sasl_server_step sasl_server_userdb_checkpass_t sasl_server_userdb_setpass_t sasl_set_alloc sasl_set_mutex sasl_seterror sasl_setpass sasl_setprop sasl_utf8verify sasl_verifyfile_t sasl_version FILES
