sasl_encode — Encode data for transport to authenticated host


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

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

int sasl_encodev(sasl_conn_t *conn, 
 const struct iovec * invec, 
 unsigned numiov, 
 const char ** output, 
 unsigned * outputlen);


sasl_encode encodes data to be sent to be sent to a remote host who we've had a successful authentication session with. If there is a negotiated security the data in signed/encrypted and the output should be sent without modification to the remote host. If there is no security layer the output is identical to the input.

sasl_encodev does the same, but for a struct iovec instead of a character buffer.

output contains the encoded data and is allocated/freed by the library.

Return Value
