sasl_authorize_t - Man Page

Cyrus SASL documentation


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_authorize_t(void *context,
                    const char *requested_user, unsigned alen,
                    const char *auth_identity, unsigned alen,
                    const char *def_realm, unsigned urlen,
                    struct propctx *propctx)


sasl_authorize_t  is  used to check whether the authorized user auth_identity may act  as  the  user  requested_user. For  example  the  user root may wish to authenticate with his credentials but act as the user mmercer (with  all  of mmercer’s  rights  not roots). A server application should be very careful, and probably err on the side of  caution, when determining which users may proxy as whom.

Return Value

SASL  callback  functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a complete list. SASL_OK indicates success.
