SASL_GETSECRET_T(3SASL) Simple Authentication Security Layer Library Functions SASL_GETSECRET_T(3SASL)

sasl_getsecret_t - the SASL callback function for secrets (passwords)

cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lsasl   [ library ... ]
#include <sasl/sasl.h>
int sasl_getsecret_t(sasl_conn_t *conn, void *context,

int id, sasl_secret_t **psecret);

Use the sasl_getsecret_t() function to retrieve the secret from the application. Allocate a sasl_secret_t to length sizeof(sasl_secret_t)+<length of secret>. sasl_secret_t has two fields of len which contain the length of secret in bytes and the data contained in secret. The secret string does not need to be null-terminated.


The connection context


The context from the callback structure


The callback ID


To cancel, set the value of psecret to NULL. Otherwise, set the value to the password structure. The structure must persist until the next call to sasl_getsecret_t() in the same connection. Middleware erases password data when it is done with it.

Like other SASL callback functions, sasl_getsecret_t() returns an integer that corresponds to a SASL error code. See <sasl.h> for a complete list of SASL error codes.


The call to sasl_getsecret_t() was successful.

See sasl_errors(3SASL) for information on SASL error codes.
