GSS_EXPORT_NAME(3) Programmer's Manual GSS_EXPORT_NAME(3)
gss_export_name -- Convert an MN to export form
gss_export_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name, gss_buffer_t exported_name);
To produce a canonical contiguous string representation of a mechanism name (MN), suitable for direct comparison (e.g. with memcmp) for use
in authorization functions (e.g. matching entries in an access-control list). The input_name parameter must specify a valid MN (i.e. an
internal name generated by gss_accept_sec_context() or by gss_canonicalize_name().)
minor_status Mechanism specific status code.
input_name The MN to be exported.
exported_name The canonical contiguous string form of input_name. Storage associated with this string must freed by the application after
use with gss_release_buffer().
GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion
GSS_S_NAME_NOT_MN The provided internal name was not a mechanism name.
GSS_S_BAD_NAME The provided internal name was ill-formed.
GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE The internal name was of a type not supported by the GSS-API implementation.
