NAME

       sasl_checkpass - Check a plaintext password

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_checkpass(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                        const char *user,
                        unsigned userlen,
                        const char *pass,
                        unsigned passlen);

DESCRIPTION

       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.

RETURN VALUE

       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.
