NAME

       sasl_encode - Encode data for transport to authenticated host

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_encode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                      const char * input,
                         unsigned inputlen,
                      const char ** output,
                      unsigned * outputlen);

       int sasl_encodev(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                      const struct iovec * invec,
                         unsigned numiov,
                      const char ** output,
                      unsigned * outputlen);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_encode encodes data to be sent to be sent to a remote host who we've had a successful
       authentication  session  with.  If  there  is  a   negotiated   security   the   data   in
       signed/encrypted and the output should be sent without modification to the remote host. If
       there is no security layer the output is identical to the input.

       sasl_encodev does the same, but for a struct iovec instead of a character buffer.

       output contains the encoded data and is allocated/freed by the library.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns SASL_OK on success.  See sasl_errors(3) for meanings of other return codes.
