Finds the first Internet password based on the attributes passed.


func SecKeychainFindInternetPassword(_ keychainOrArray: CFTypeRef?, _ serverNameLength: UInt32, _ serverName: UnsafePointer<Int8>?, _ securityDomainLength: UInt32, _ securityDomain: UnsafePointer<Int8>?, _ accountNameLength: UInt32, _ accountName: UnsafePointer<Int8>?, _ pathLength: UInt32, _ path: UnsafePointer<Int8>?, _ port: UInt16, _ protocol: SecProtocolType, _ authenticationType: SecAuthenticationType, _ passwordLength: UnsafeMutablePointer<UInt32>?, _ passwordData: UnsafeMutablePointer<UnsafeMutableRawPointer?>?, _ itemRef: UnsafeMutablePointer<SecKeychainItem?>?) -> OSStatus



A reference to an array of keychains to search, a single keychain or NULL to search the user’s default keychain search list.


The length of the serverName character string.


A UTF-8 encoded character string representing the server name.


The length of the securityDomain character string.


A UTF-8 encoded character string representing the security domain. This parameter is optional, as not all protocols require it. Pass NULL if it is not required.


The length of the accountName character string.


A UTF-8 encoded character string representing the account name.


The length of the path character string.


A UTF-8 encoded character string representing the path.


The TCP/IP port number. Pass 0 to ignore the port number.


The protocol associated with this password. See SecProtocolType for a description of possible values.


The authentication scheme used. See SecAuthenticationType for a description of possible values. Pass the constant kSecAuthenticationTypeDefault, to specify the default authentication scheme.


On return, the length of the buffer pointed to by passwordData.


On return, a pointer to a buffer containing the password data. Pass NULL if you want to obtain the item object but not the password data. In this case, you must also pass NULL in the passwordLength parameter. You should use the SecKeychainItemFreeContent(_:_:) function to free the memory pointed to by this parameter.


On return, a pointer to the item object of the Internet password. You are responsible for releasing your reference to this object. Pass NULL if you don’t want to obtain this object.

Return Value


This function finds the first Internet password item that matches the attributes you provide. This function optionally returns a reference to the found item.

This function decrypts the password before returning it to you. If the calling application is not in the list of trusted applications, the user is prompted before access is allowed. If the access controls for this item do not allow decryption, the function returns the errSecAuthFailed result code.

This function automatically calls the function SecKeychainUnlock(_:_:_:_:) to display the Unlock Keychain dialog box if the keychain is currently locked.
