AuthDomainBasicAuthCallback


Description:

public delegate bool AuthDomainBasicAuthCallback (AuthDomainBasic domain, Message msg, string username, string password)

Callback used by AuthDomainBasic 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.

Parameters:

domain

the domain

msg

the message being authenticated

username

the username provided by the client

password

the password provided by the client

user_data

the data passed to set_auth_callback

Returns:

true if username and password are valid
