NAME         top

       sd_bus_message_sensitive - Mark a message object as containing
       sensitive data

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       int sd_bus_message_sensitive(sd_bus_message *message);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_message_sensitive() marks an allocated bus message as
       containing sensitive data. This ensures that the message data is
       carefully removed from memory (specifically, overwritten with zero
       bytes) when released. It is recommended to mark all incoming and
       outgoing messages like this that contain security credentials and
       similar data that should be dealt with carefully. Note that it is not
       possible to unmark messages like this, it's a one way operation. If a
       message is already marked sensitive and then marked sensitive a
       second time the message remains marked so and no further operation is
       executed.

       As a safety precaution all messages that are created as reply to
       messages that are marked sensitive are also implicitly marked so.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, this functions return 0 or a positive integer. On
       failure, it returns a negative errno-style error code.

   Errors
       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

       -EINVAL
           The message parameter is NULL.

NOTES         top

       These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled
       and linked to with the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
