NAME
       keyctl_link - Link a key to a keyring keyctl_unlink - Unlink a key from a keyring

SYNOPSIS
       #include <keyutils.h>

       long keyctl_link(key_serial_t key, key_serial_t keyring);

       long keyctl_unlink(key_serial_t key, key_serial_t keyring);

DESCRIPTION
       keyctl_link()  creates  a  link from keyring to key, displacing any link to another key of
       the same type and description in that keyring if one exists.

       keyctl_unlink() removes the link from keyring to key if it exists.

       The caller must have write permission on a keyring to be able create or	remove	links  in
       it.

       The caller must have link permission on a key to be able to create a link to it.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success  keyctl_link()  and	keyctl_unlink() return 0.  On error, the value -1 will be
       returned and errno will have been set to an appropriate error.

ERRORS
       ENOKEY The key or the keyring specified are invalid.

       EKEYEXPIRED
	      The key or the keyring specified have expired.

       EKEYREVOKED
	      The key or the keyring specified have been revoked.

       EACCES The keyring exists, but is not writable by the calling process.

       For keyctl_link() only:

       ENOMEM Insufficient memory to expand the keyring

       EDQUOT Expanding the keyring would exceed the keyring owner's quota.

       EACCES The key exists, but is not linkable by the calling process.

LINKING
       This is a library function that can be found in	libkeyutils.   When  linking,  -lkeyutils
       should be specified to the linker.
