NAME

       sasl_callbacks - How to work with SASL callbacks

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_callbacks  are used when the application needs some information from the application.
       Common reasons are getting for getting usernames and passwords. A client MUST specify what
       callbacks they support in the sasl_client/server_init() or sasl_client/server_new() calls.
       If an authentication mechanism needs a callback that the application  does  not  state  it
       supports it cannot be used.

       If  a  callback has an id parameter that should be checked to make sure you are giving the
       appropriate value.

       If an application is using the  client  side  of  the  library  functions  to  handle  the
       callbacks  are  not  necessary.  Instead  the  application  may  deal  with  callbacks via
       SASL_INTERACT's. See sasl_client_start/step() for more information.

       The list of callbacks follows:

Common Callbacks

       sasl_getopt_t
               Get an option value

       sasl_log_t
               Log message handler

       sasl_getpath_t
               Get path to search for plugins (e.g. SASL mechanisms)

       sasl_verifyfile_t
               Verify files for use by SASL

       sasl_canon_user_t
               Username canonicalization function.

Client-only Callbacks

       sasl_getsimple_t
               Get user/language list

       sasl_getsecret_t
               Get authentication secret

       sasl_chalprompt_t
               Display challenge and prompt for response

       sasl_getrealm_t
               Get the realm for authentication

Server-only Callbacks

       sasl_authorize_t
               Authorize policy callback

       sasl_server_userdb_checkpass_t
               verify plaintext password

       sasl_server_userdb_setpass_t
               set plaintext password

       sasl_getconfpath_t
               Get path to search for SASL configuration file (server side  only).  New  in  SASL
               2.1.22.

RETURN VALUE

       SASL  callback  functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a complete list.
       SASL_OK typically indicates success.
