Function

SoupAuthDomainBasicAuthCallback

Declaration

gboolean
(* SoupAuthDomainBasicAuthCallback) (
  SoupAuthDomain* domain,
  SoupServerMessage* msg,
  const char* username,
  const char* password,
  gpointer user_data
)

Description [src]

Callback used by SoupAuthDomainBasic for authentication purposes.

The application should verify that username and password and valid and return TRUE or FALSE.

If you are maintaining your own password database (rather than using the password to authenticate against some other system like PAM or a remote server), you should make sure you know what you are doing. In particular, don’t store cleartext passwords, or easily-computed hashes of cleartext passwords, even if you don’t care that much about the security of your server, because users will frequently use the same password for multiple sites, and so compromising any site with a cleartext (or easily-cracked) password database may give attackers access to other more-interesting sites as well.
