RPC_CLNT_AUTH(3) BSD Library Functions Manual RPC_CLNT_AUTH(3)
auth_destroy, authnone_create, authsys_create, authsys_create_default -- library routines
for client side remote procedure call authentication
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
authsys_create(const char *host, const uid_t uid, const gid_t gid, const int len,
const gid_t *aup_gids);
These routines are part of the RPC library that allows C language programs to make procedure
calls on other machines across the network, with desired authentication.
These routines are normally called after creating the CLIENT handle. The cl_auth field of
the CLIENT structure should be initialized by the AUTH structure returned by some of the
following routines. The client's authentication information is passed to the server when
the RPC call is made.
Only the NULL and the SYS style of authentication is discussed here.
auth_destroy() A function macro that destroys the authentication information
associated with auth. Destruction usually involves deallocation
of private data structures. The use of auth() is undefined after
authnone_create() Create and return an RPC authentication handle that passes nonus-
able authentication information with each remote procedure call.
This is the default authentication used by RPC.
authsys_create() Create and return an RPC authentication handle that contains
AUTH_SYS authentication information. The parameter host is the
name of the machine on which the information was created; uid is
the user's user ID; gid is the user's current group ID; len and
aup_gids refer to a counted array of groups to which the user
authsys_create_default() Call authsys_create() with the appropriate parameters.
