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.
