Description

The fido_dev_set_io_functions() function sets the I/O handlers used by libfido2 to talk to dev. By default, these handlers are set to the operating system's native HID or NFC interfaces. They are defined as follows:

fido_dev_open_t

Receives a const char * holding a path and opens the corresponding device, returning a non-NULL opaque pointer on success and NULL on error.

fido_dev_close_t

Receives the opaque pointer returned by fido_dev_open_t and closes the device.

fido_dev_read_t

Reads a single transmission unit (HID report, APDU) from a device. The first parameter is the opaque pointer returned by fido_dev_open_t. The second parameter is the read buffer, and the third parameter is the read buffer size. The fourth parameter is the number of milliseconds the caller is willing to sleep, should the call need to block. If this value holds -1, fido_dev_read_t may block indefinitely. On success, the number of bytes read is returned. On error, -1 is returned.

fido_dev_write_t

Writes a single transmission unit (HID report, APDU) to dev. The first parameter is the opaque pointer returned by fido_dev_open_t. The second parameter is the write buffer, and the third parameter is the number of bytes to be written. A fido_dev_write_t may block. On success, the number of bytes written is returned. On error, -1 is returned.

When calling fido_dev_set_io_functions(), the open, close, read, and write fields of io may not be NULL.

No references to io are held by fido_dev_set_io_functions().

The fido_dev_set_sigmask() function may be used to specify a non-NULL signal mask sigmask to be used while libfido2's default I/O handlers wait on dev. On UNIX-like operating systems, fido_sigset_t is defined as sigset_t. On Windows, fido_sigset_t is defined as int and fido_dev_set_sigmask() is a no-op.

No references to sigmask are held by fido_dev_set_sigmask().

Return Values

On success, fido_dev_set_io_functions() and fido_dev_set_sigmask() return FIDO_OK. On error, a different error code defined in <fido/err.h> is returned.
