NAME
       sasl_encode - Encode data for transport to authenticated host(1,5)



SYNOPSIS
       #include <sasl/sasl.h>


       int sasl_encode(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                      const char * input,
                         unsigned inputlen,
                      const char ** output,
                      unsigned * outputlen);

       int sasl_encodev(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                      const struct iovec * invec,
                         unsigned numiov,
                      const char ** output,
                      unsigned * outputlen);


DESCRIPTION
       sasl_encode  encodes  data  to  be sent to be sent to a remote host(1,5) who
       we've had a successful authentication session with. If there is a nego-
       tiated  security  the data in(1,8) 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 charac-
       ter 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.


CONFORMING TO
       RFC 2222
