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 sup-
		   ported 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 mod-
		   ule 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.

     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
