NameAndPassword

This project is an example of a Authorization Plug-in that uses an SFAuthorizationPluginView to present UI to the user.  The NameAndPassword.bundle should be installed in "/System/Library/CoreServices/SecurityAgentPlugins/"


An good way to test your plugin is to create a right in the Policy Database that ask for that right using the code below:

- (void)askForRight:(NSString *)inRightName
{
	AuthorizationItem		right = { NULL, 0, NULL, 0 };
	AuthorizationRights		rightSet = { 1, &right };
	AuthorizationFlags		flags = kAuthorizationFlagDefaults | kAuthorizationFlagInteractionAllowed | kAuthorizationFlagExtendRights | kAuthorizationFlagPreAuthorize;
	OSStatus				status;
	SFAuthorization			*authorization;
	
	right.name = [inRightName cStringUsingEncoding: NSASCIIStringEncoding];
	
	authorization = [SFAuthorization authorization];
	if (!authorization)
	{
		NSLog("couldn't create authorization.");
		return;
	}
	
	status = [authorization permitWithRights:&rightSet flags:flags environment:kAuthorizationEmptyEnvironment authorizedRights:NULL];
	if (status != errAuthorizationSuccess)
	{
		NSLog("auth failed with err %d.", status);
		return;
	}
}


NOTE: The WWDC 2006 build of Mac OS X 10.5 likely won't authenticate properly.  But it will allow you to test your SFAuthorizationPluginView.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
