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)

     #include <rpc/rpc.h>

     auth_destroy(AUTH *auth);

     AUTH *

     AUTH *
     authsys_create(const char *host, const uid_t uid, const gid_t gid, const int len,
	 const gid_t *aup_gids);

     AUTH *

     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
			       calling auth_destroy().

     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.
