OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for getppriv (opensolaris section 2)

getppriv(2)				   System Calls 			      getppriv(2)

       getppriv, setppriv - get or set a privilege set

       #include <priv.h>

       int getppriv(priv_ptype_t which, priv_set_t *set);

       int setppriv(priv_op_t op, priv_ptype_t which, priv_set_t *set);

       The  getppriv()	function  returns the process privilege set specified by which in the set
       pointed to by set. The memory for set is allocated with	priv_allocset()  and  freed  with
       priv_freeset(). Both functions are documented on the priv_addset(3C) manual page.

       The  setppriv() function sets or changes the process privilege set. The op argument speci-
       fies the operation and can be one of PRIV_OFF, PRIV_ON or  PRIV_SET.  The  which  argument
       specifies the name of the privilege set. The set argument specifies the set.

       If op is PRIV_OFF, the privileges in set are removed from the process privilege set speci-
       fied by which. There are no restrictions on removing privileges	from  process  privileges
       sets, but the following apply:

	   o	  Privileges  removed  from  PRIV_PERMITTED are silently removed from PRIV_EFFEC-

	   o	  If privileges are removed from PRIV_LIMIT, they are not removed from the  other
		  sets until one of exec(2) functions has successfully completed.

       If  op  is PRIV_ON, the privileges in set are added to the process privilege set specified
       by which.  The following operations are permitted:

	   o	  Privileges in PRIV_PERMITTED can be added to	PRIV_EFFECTIVE	without  restric-

	   o	  Privileges  in PRIV_PERMITTED can be added to PRIV_INHERITABLE without restric-

	   o	  All operations that attempt to add privileges that are already present are per-

       If  op  is  PRIV_SET,  the  privileges in set replace completely the process privilege set
       specified by which. PRIV_SET is implemented in terms of PRIV_OFF  and  PRIV_ON.	The  same
       restrictions apply.

       Upon  successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1  is returned and errno is set to
       indicate the error.

       The getppriv() and setppriv() functions will fail if:

       EINVAL	 The value of op or which is out of range.

       EFAULT	 The set argument points to an illegal address.

       The setppriv() function will fail if:

       EPERM	The application attempted to add privileges to PRIV_LIMIT or  PRIV_PERMITTED,  or
		the application attempted to add privileges to PRIV_INHERITABLE or PRIV_EFFECTIVE
		which were not in PRIV_PERMITTED.
