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
              AUXPROP_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),
              noactive (require protection from active attacks), nodict
              (require mechanisms which are secure against passive dictionary
              attacks), forwardsec (require forward secrecy), passcred
              (require mechanisms that can delegate client credentials),
              maximum (require all security flags).

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