sasl_getprop — Get a SASL property


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_getprop(sasl_conn_t *conn, 
 int propnum, 
 const void ** pvalue);


sasl_getprop gets the value of a SASL property. For example after successful authentication a server may wish to know the authorization name. Or a client application may wish to know the strength of the negotiated security layer.

conn is the SASL connection object. propnum is the identifier for the property requested and pvalue is filled in on success. List of properties follows:

SASL_USERNAME     -  pointer to NUL terminated user name 
SASL_SSF          -  security layer security strength factor,
                     if 0, call to sasl_encode, sasl_decode unnecessary
SASL_MAXOUTBUF    -  security layer max output buf unsigned 
SASL_DEFUSERREALM -  server authentication realm used 
SASL_GETOPTCTX    -  context for getopt callback 
SASL_IPLOCALPORT  -  local address string
SASL_IPREMOTEPORT -  remote address string
SASL_SERVICE      -  service passed to sasl_*_new
SASL_SERVERFQDN   -  serverFQDN passed to sasl_*_new
SASL_AUTHSOURCE   -  name of auth source last used, useful for failed
                     authentication tracking
SASL_MECHNAME     -  active mechanism name, if any
SASL_PLUGERR      -  similar to sasl_errdetail
