gsasl_step64(3) API function


#include <gsasl.h>

int gsasl_step64(Gsasl_session * sctx, const char * b64input, char ** b64output);


Gsasl_session * sctx
libgsasl client handle.
const char * b64input
input base64 encoded byte array.
char ** b64output
newly allocated output base64 encoded byte array.


This is a simple wrapper around gsasl_step() that base64 decodes the input and base64 encodes the output.

The contents of the b64output buffer is unspecified if this functions returns anything other than GSASL_OK or GSASL_NEEDS_MORE. If this function return GSASL_OK or GSASL_NEEDS_MORE, however, the b64output buffer is allocated by this function, and it is the responsibility of caller to deallocate it by calling free (b64output).


Returns GSASL_OK if authenticated terminated successfully, GSASL_NEEDS_MORE if more data is needed, or error code.
