sasl_checkpass - Check a plaintext password¶
#include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn, const char *user, unsigned userlen, const char *pass, unsigned passlen);
int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char *user,
const char *pass,
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.
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.
