       pluginviewer - list loadable SASL plugins and their properties


       pluginviewer [-a] [-s] [-c] [-b min=N,max=N] [-e ssf=N,id=ID] [-m MECHS] [-x AUXPROP_MECH]
       [-f FLAGS] [-p PATH]


       pluginviewer can be used by a server administrator  to  troubleshoot  SASL  installations.
       The  utility  can  list  loadable (properly configured) client and server side plugins, as
       well as auxprop plugins.


       -a     List auxprop plugins.

       -s     List server authentication (SASL) plugins.

       -c     List client authentication (SASL) plugins.

       -b min=N1,max=N2
              List client authentication (SASL) plugins.  Strength of the SASL security layer  in
              bits.  min=N1  specifies  the  minumum strength to use (1 => integrity protection).
              max=N2 specifies the maximum strength to use.  Only SASL mechanisms  which  support
              security layer with strength M such that N1 <= M <= N2 will be shown.

       -e ssf=N,id=ID
              Assume that an external security layer (e.g. TLS) with N-bit strength is installed.
              The ID is the authentication identity used by the external security layer.

       -m MECHS
              Limit listed SASL plugins to the ones included in the MECHS (space separated) list.

              Limit listed auxprop  plugins  to  the  one  listed  in  the  AUXPROP_MECHS  (space
              separated) list.

       -f FLAGS
              Set security flags. FLAGS is a comma separated list of one or more of the following
              security flags: noplain (SASL mechanism doesn´t send password in the  clear  during
              authentication), noactive (require protection from active attacks), nodict (require
              mechanisms  which  are  secure  against  passive  dictionary  attacks),  forwardsec
              (require  forward  secrecy),  passcred (require mechanisms that can delegate client
              credentials), maximum (require all security flags).

       -p PATH
              Specifies a colon-separated search path for plugins.
