sasl_decode - Cyrus SASL documentation
int sasl_decode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
const char * input,
const char ** output,
unsigned * outputlen);
- int sasl_decode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
- const char * input,
- unsigned inputlen,
- const char ** output,
- unsigned * outputlen);
- sasl_decode decodes data received. After successful authentication
this function should be called on all data received. It decodes the data
from encrypted or signed form to plain data. If there was no security
layer negotiated the output is identical to the input.
- conn – is the SASL connection context
- output – contains the decoded data and is allocated/freed by
- outputlen – length of output.
One should not give sasl_decode more data than the negotiated maxbufsize
Note that sasl_decode can succeed and outputlen can be zero. If this is the case
simply wait for more data and call sasl_decode again.
SASL callback functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a
complete list. SASL_OK
Other return codes indicate errors and should be handled.
