MECH(5) 						      BSD File Formats Manual							   MECH(5)

NAME
mech, qop -- GSS-API Mechanism and QOP files SYNOPSIS
/etc/gss/mech /etc/gss/qop DESCRIPTION
The /etc/gss/mech file contains a list of installed GSS-API security mechanisms. Each line of the file either contains a comment if the first character is '#' or it contains five fields with the following meanings: Name The name of this GSS-API mechanism. Object identifier The OID for this mechanism. Library A shared library containing the implementation of this mechanism. Kernel module (optional) A kernel module containing the implementation of this mechanism (not yet supported in FreeBSD). Library options (optional) Optionsal parameters interpreted by the mechanism. Library options must be enclosed in brackets ([ ]) to differentiate them from the optional kernel module entry. The /etc/gss/qop file contains a list of Quality of Protection values for use with GSS-API. Each line of the file either contains a comment if the first character is '#' or it contains three fields with the following meanings: QOP string The name of this Quality of Protection algorithm. QOP value The numeric value used to select this algorithm for use with GSS-API functions such as gss_get_mic(3). Mechanism name The GSS-API mechanism name that corresponds to this algorithm. EXAMPLES
This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/mech: kerberosv5 1.2.840.113554.1.2.2 /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so.8 - This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/qop: GSS_KRB5_CONF_C_QOP_DES 0x0100 kerberosv5 HISTORY
