Synopsis

#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_decode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
               const char * input,
                unsigned inputlen,
               const char ** output,
               unsigned * outputlen);

Description

int sasl_decode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char * input,
unsigned inputlen,
const char ** output,
unsigned * outputlen);

sasl_decode decodes   data  received.  After  successful authentication this function should be called on all  data received.  It  decodes  the data from encrypted or signed form to plain data. If there was no security layer negotiated the output is identical to the input.

Parameters
  • conn – is the SASL connection context
  • output – contains the decoded data and is allocated/freed by the library.
  • outputlen – length of output.

One should not give  sasl_decode  more  data  than  the negotiated maxbufsize (see sasl_getprop(3)).

Note  that  sasl_decode  can  succeed and outputlen can be zero. If this is the case simply wait for  more  data  and call sasl_decode again.

Return Value

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

Other return codes indicate errors and should be handled.
