Synopsis

#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                 const char *user,
                 unsigned userlen,
                 const char *pass,
                 unsigned passlen);

Description

int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char *user,
unsigned userlen,
const char *pass,
unsigned passlen)

sasl_checkpass  will check a plaintext password. This is needed for protocols that had a login method  before  SASL (for  example  the LOGIN command in IMAP). The password is checked with the pwcheck_method. See sasl_callbacks(3)  for information on how this parameter is set.

Return Value

sasl_checkpass returns an integer which corresponds to one of the following codes. SASL_OK indicates that the authentication  is  complete.  All  other  return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the  authentication session  should  be quit.  See sasl_errors(3) for meanings of return codes.
