NAME
sasl_checkpass - check a plaintext password SYNOPSIS

The sasl_checkpass() interface checks a plaintext password. The sasl_checkpass() interface is used for protocols that had a login method before SASL, for example, the LOGIN command in IMAP. The password is checked with the pwcheck_method. The sasl_checkpass() interface is a server interface. You cannot use it to check passwords from a client. The sasl_checkpass() interface checks the posible repositories until it succeeds or there are no more repositories. If sasl_server_userdb_checkpass_t is registered, sasl_checkpass() tries it first. Use the pwcheck_method SASL option to specify which pwcheck methods to use. The sasl_checkpass() interface supports the transition of passwords if the SASL option auto_transition is on. If user is NULL, check is plaintext passwords are enabled. PARAMETERS
conn The sasl_conn_t for which the request is being made pass Plaintext password to check passlen The length of pass user User to query in current user_domain userlen The length of username. RETURN VALUES
sasl_checkpass() returns an integer that corresponds to a SASL error code. ERRORS
