NAME
       pluginviewer - list loadable SASL plugins and their properties

SYNOPSIS
       pluginviewer   [-a]   [-s]   [-c]   [-b min=N,max=N]   [-e ssf=N,id=ID]
       [-m MECHS] [-x AUXPROP_MECH] [-f FLAGS] [-p PATH]

DESCRIPTION
       pluginviewer can be used by a server administrator to troubleshoot SASL
       installations.   The  utility  can  list loadable (properly configured)
       client and server side plugins, as well as auxprop plugins.

OPTIONS
       -a     List auxprop plugins.

       -s     List server authentication (SASL) plugins.

       -c     List client authentication (SASL) plugins.

       -b min=N1,max=N2
              List client authentication (SASL) plugins.  Strength of the SASL
              security layer in bits. min=N1 specifies the minumum strength to
              use (1 => integrity protection). max=N2  specifies  the  maximum
              strength  to  use.   Only SASL mechanisms which support security
              layer with strength M such that N1 <= M <= N2 will be shown.

       -e ssf=N,id=ID
              Assume that an external security layer  (e.g.  TLS)  with  N-bit
              strength  is  installed.   The ID is the authentication identity
              used by the external security layer.

       -m MECHS
              Limit listed SASL plugins to the  ones  included  in  the  MECHS
              (space separated) list.

       -x AUXPROP_MECHS
              Limit  listed  auxprop  plugins  to  the  one listed in the AUX-
              PROP_MECHS (space separated) list.

       -f FLAGS
              Set security flags. FLAGS is a comma separated list  of  one  or
              more  of  the  following security flags: noplain (SASL mechanism
              doesn't send password in the clear during authentication), noac-
              tive  (require  protection from active attacks), nodict (require
              mechanisms which are secure against passive dictionary attacks),
              forwardsec  (require  forward secrecy), passcred (require mecha-
              nisms that can delegate client  credentials),  maximum  (require
              all security flags).

       -p PATH
              Specifies a colon-separated search path for plugins.
