sasl_encodev - Man Page

Cyrus SASL documentation

Synopsis

#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);

Description

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.

int sasl_encode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char * input,
unsigned inputlen,
const char ** output,
unsigned * outputlen);
Parameters
  • conn – is the SASL connection context
  • output – contains the decoded data and is allocated/freed by the library.
  • outputlen – length of output.

int sasl_encodev(sasl_conn_t *conn,

const struct iovec * invec,

unsigned numiov,

const char ** output,

unsigned * outputlen);

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

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.
