Authentication on user request

I'm trying to implement libssh2 for my application and all functions I see requires that user must be authenticated in order to transmit commands through channel. libssh2_channel_open_session(session) requires a user must be authenticated for particular session, then, channel will be created. libssh2_userauth_authenticated(session) is required to check user authentication. But what I want is to open a channel for user who is not authenticated. Like, terminal will open and ask user for password authentication. I want such functionality. If user has not specified password, it'll be asked when he opens terminal. Can anyone suggest me any idea? How can I implement it?

Without authentication, user needs to be able to open terminal and on terminal he'll input password, which will be used for authentication. This way, user keeps password security.
