sasl_server_step - Cyrus SASL documentation
#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, unsigned clientinlen, const char ** serverout, unsigned * serveroutlen); sasl_server_step() performs a step in the authentication negotiation. It returns SASL_OK if the whole negotiation is successful and SASL_CONTINUE if this step is ok but at least one more step is needed. Parameters · 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. SASL_OK indicates that the authentication is complete. Other return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the authentication session should be quit.
