NAME
gss_inquire_cred_by_mech - obtain per-mechanism information about a credential SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lgss [ library... ] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_inquire_cred_by_mech(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_cred_id_t cred_handle,const gss_OID mech_type, gss_name_t *name, OM_uint32 *initiator_lifetime, OM_uint32 *acceptor_lifetime, gss_cred_usage_t *cred_usage); PARAMETERS
acceptor_lifetime The number of seconds that the credential is capable of accepting security contexts under the specified mechanism. If the credential can no longer be used to accept contexts, or if the credential usage for this mechanism is GSS_C_INI- TIATE, this parameter will be set to 0. Specify NULL if this parameter is not required. cred_handle A handle that refers to the target credential. Specify GSS_C_NO_CREDENTIAL to inquire about the default initiator principal. cred_usage How the credential may be used with the specified mechanism. The cred_usage parameter may contain one of the follow- ing values: GSS_C_INITIATE, GSS_C_ACCEPT, or GSS_C_BOTH. Specify NULL if this parameter is not required. initiator_lifetime The number of seconds that the credential is capable of initiating security contexts under the specified mechanism. If the credential can no longer be used to initiate contexts, or if the credential usage for this mechanism is GSS_C_ACCEPT, this parameter will be set to 0. Specify NULL if this parameter is not required. mech_type The mechanism for which the information should be returned. minor_status A mechanism specific status code. name The name whose identity the credential asserts. Any storage associated with this name must be freed by the applica- tion after use by a call to gss_release_name(3GSS). DESCRIPTION
The gss_inquire_cred_by_mech() function obtains per-mechanism information about a credential. ERRORS
The gss_inquire_cred_by_mech() function can return the following status codes: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. GSS_S_CREDENTIALS_EXPIRED The credentials cannot be added because they have expired. GSS_S_DEFECTIVE_CREDENTIAL The referenced credentials are invalid. GSS_S_FAILURE The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no specific GSS status code is defined. The mechanism- specific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition. GSS_S_NO_CRED The referenced credentials cannot be accessed. GSS_S_UNAVAILABLE The gss_inquire_cred_by_mech() function is not available for the specified mechanism type. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
gss_inquire_cred_by_mech() - provide the calling application per-mechanism information about a credential SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
The routine provides per-mechanism information about a credential. Input Parameters cred_handle Specifies a handle for the target credential. To get information about the default credential, specify mech_type Set of security mechanisms for which information should be returned. Output Parameters name Returns the principal name asserted by the credential. If the principal name is not required, specify NULL. initiator_lifetime Returns the number of seconds for which the credential will remain capable of initiating security contexts under the specified mechanism. If the credential can no longer be used to initiate contexts, or if the credential usage for this mechanism is this parameter will be set to zero. If the implementation does not support expiration of initiator credentials, the parameter returns the value If an expiration time is not required, specify NULL. acceptor_lifetime Returns the number of seconds for which the credential will remain capable of accepting security contexts under the specified mechanism. If the implementation does not support expiration of initiator credentials, the parameter returns the value If an expiration time is not required, specify NULL. cred_usage Returns one of the following values describing how the application can use the credential: If no usage information is required, specify NULL. minor_status Returns a status code from the security mechanism. STATUS CODES
The following status codes can be returned: The routine was completed successfully. The credentials expired. If the lifetime parameter was passed as NULL, it is set to 0 (zero). The credentials were invalid. The routine failed. Check the minor_status parameter for details. The routine could not access the credentials. AUTHOR
