SYNOPSIS


#include <sasl/sasl.h> 

int sasl_encode(sasl_conn_t *conn,                  const char *          unsigned ,                  const char **                  unsigned *

int sasl_encodev(sasl_conn_t *conn,                  const struct iovec *          unsigned ,                  const char **                  unsigned *

DESCRIPTION

sasl_encode encodes data to be sent to be sent to a remote host who we’ve had a successful authentication session with. If there is a negotiated security the data in signed/encrypted and the output should be sent without modification to the remote host. If there is no security layer the output is identical to the input.

sasl_encodev does the same, but for a struct iovec instead of a character buffer.

output contains the encoded data and is allocated/freed by the library.

RETURN VALUE

Returns SASL_OK on success. See sasl_errors(3) for meanings of other return codes.
