NAME

       sasl_server_step - Perform a step in the authentication negotiation

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_server_step(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                           const char *clientin,
                           unsigned clientinlen,
                        const char ** serverout,
                           unsigned * serveroutlen);

DESCRIPTION

       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.

       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 and serveroutlen are set by the library and should be sent to the client.

RETURN VALUE

       sasl_server_step returns an integer which corresponds to one  of  the  SASL  error  codes.
       SASL_CONTINUE   indicates   success   and   that  there  are  more  steps  needed  in  the
       authentication. 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.
