NAME

       libssh2_userauth_keyboard_interactive_ex   -   authenticate   a  session  using  keyboard-
       interactive authentication

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       int
       libssh2_userauth_keyboard_interactive_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session,
                                                const char *username,
                                                unsigned int username_len,
                   LIBSSH2_USERAUTH_KBDINT_RESPONSE_FUNC(*response_callback));

DESCRIPTION

       session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3).

       username - Name of user to attempt keyboard-interactive authentication for.

       username_len - Length of username parameter.

       response_callback - As authentication proceeds,  the  host  issues  several  (1  or  more)
       challenges  and  requires  responses.  This  callback  will  be called at this moment. The
       callback is responsible to obtain responses for the challenges,  fill  the  provided  data
       structure  and then return control. Responses will be sent to the host. String values will
       be free(3)ed by the library. The callback prototype must match this:

        void response(const char *name,
                      int name_len, const char *instruction,
                      int instruction_len,
                      int num_prompts,
                      const LIBSSH2_USERAUTH_KBDINT_PROMPT *prompts,
                      LIBSSH2_USERAUTH_KBDINT_RESPONSE *responses,
                      void **abstract);

       Attempts keyboard-interactive (challenge/response) authentication.

       Note that many SSH servers will always issue a  single  "password"  challenge,  requesting
       actual  password  as  response,  but  it  is  not  required  by  the protocol, and various
       authentication schemes, such as  smartcard  authentication  may  use  keyboard-interactive
       authentication type too.

RETURN VALUE

       Return 0 on success or negative on failure.  It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would
       otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is  a  negative  number,  it  isn't  really  a
       failure per se.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       IBSSH2_ERROR_AUTHENTICATION_FAILED  -  failed, invalid username/password or public/private
       key.
