vauthenticate - Authenticate a virtual user

vauthenticate

vauthenticate reads a domain name, user name, and pass phrase from standard input, and authenticates the virtual user. If authentication is successful, it prints out information about the virtual user on stdout
The domain name, user name, and pass phrase are passed to vauthenticate on standard input each seperated by a NUL byte.
The output consists of a series of lines containing an identifier, an equal sign, and the data for that identifier, terminated by a newline. The identifiers are:
UID
The base user's numerical user ID.
GID
The base user's numerical group ID.
USER
The base user's name.
HOME
The base user's home directory.
MAILDIR
The virtual user's mailbox directory, relative to "HOME".
VUSER
The virtual user's name.

None

Returns 0 if authentication succeeds, and non-zero otherwise.

vmailmgr(7)

Although the output from vauthenticate appears to be suitable for using as shell input, care must be taken to escape characters that would cause the shell to misbehave, such as semicolons.

This program will not authenticate non-virtual users.
