sasl_server_step - Perform a step in the authentication negotiation¶
#include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_server_step(sasl_conn_t *conn, const char *clientin, unsigned clientinlen, const char ** serverout, unsigned * serveroutlen);
int sasl_server_step(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char *clientin,
const char ** serverout,
unsigned * serveroutlen);
sasl_server_step() performs a step in the authentication negotiation. It returns
SASL_OKif the whole negotiation is successful and
SASL_CONTINUEif this step is ok but at least one more step is needed.
- conn – is the SASL connection context
- clientin – is the data given by the client (decoded if the protocol encodes requests sent over the wire)
- clientinlen – is the length of clientin
- serverout – set by the library and should be sent to the client.
- serveroutlen – length of serverout.
SASL callback functions should return SASL return codes.
See sasl.h for a complete list.
SASL_CONTINUE indicates success
and that there are more steps needed in the authentication.
indicates that the authentication is complete.
Other return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the authentication session should be quit.
