gss_verify_mic(3GSS)				  Generic Security Services API Library Functions			      gss_verify_mic(3GSS)

NAME
gss_verify_mic - verify integrity of a received message SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lgss [ library... ] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_verify_mic(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, const gss_buffer_t message_buffer, const gss_buffer_t token_buffer, gss_qop_t *qop_state); DESCRIPTION
The gss_verify_mic() function verifies that a cryptographic MIC, contained in the token parameter, fits the supplied message. The qop_state parameter allows a message recipient to determine the strength of protection that was applied to the message. Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap(3GSS) to provide secure framing, the GSS-API supports the calculation and verification of MICs over zero-length messages. PARAMETERS
The parameter descriptions for gss_verify_mic() follow: minor_status The status code returned by the underlying mechanism. context_handle Identifies the context on which the message arrived. message_buffer The message to be verified. token_buffer The token associated with the message. qop_state Specifies the quality of protection gained from the MIC. Specify NULL if this parameter is not required. ERRORS
gss_verify_mic() may return the following status codes: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. GSS_S_DEFECTIVE_TOKEN The token failed consistency checks. GSS_S_BAD_SIG The MIC was incorrect. GSS_S_DUPLICATE_TOKEN The token was valid and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it had already been processed. GSS_S_OLD_TOKEN The token was valid and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it is too old to check for duplication. GSS_S_UNSEQ_TOKEN The token was valid and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it has been verified out of sequence; a later token has already been received. GSS_S_GAP_TOKEN The token was valid and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it has been verified out of sequence; an ear- lier expected token has not yet been received. GSS_S_CONTEXT_EXPIRED The context has already expired. GSS_S_NO_CONTEXT The context_handle parameter did not identify a valid context. GSS_S_FAILURE The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no specific GSS status code is defined. The mechanism-spe- cific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
gss_verify_mic, gss_verify -- Check a MIC against a message; verify integrity of a received message SYNOPSIS
#include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_verify_mic(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, const gss_buffer_t message_buffer, const gss_buffer_t token_buffer, gss_qop_t *qop_state); OM_uint32 gss_verify(OM_uint32 *minor_status, gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, gss_buffer_t message_buffer, gss_buffer_t token_buffer, gss_qop_t *qop_state); DESCRIPTION
Verifies that a cryptographic MIC, contained in the token parameter, fits the supplied message. The qop_state parameter allows a message recipient to determine the strength of protection that was applied to the message. Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap() to provide "secure framing", implementations must support the calculation and verification of MICs over zero-length messages. The gss_verify() routine is an obsolete variant of gss_verify_mic(). It is provided for backwards compatibility with applications using the GSS-API V1 interface. A distinct entrypoint (as opposed to #define) is provided, both to allow GSS-API V1 applications to link and to retain the slight parameter type differences between the obsolete versions of this routine and its current form. PARAMETERS
minor_status Mechanism specific status code. context_handle Identifies the context on which the message arrived. message_buffer Message to be verified. token_buffer Token associated with message. qop_state Quality of protection gained from MIC. Specify NULL if not required. RETURN VALUES
GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion GSS_S_DEFECTIVE_TOKEN The token failed consistency checks GSS_S_BAD_SIG The MIC was incorrect GSS_S_DUPLICATE_TOKEN The token was valid, and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it had already been processed GSS_S_OLD_TOKEN The token was valid, and contained a correct MIC for the message, but it is too old to check for duplication GSS_S_UNSEQ_TOKEN The token was valid, and contained a correct MIC for the message, but has been verified out of sequence; a later token has already been received. GSS_S_GAP_TOKEN The token was valid, and contained a correct MIC for the message, but has been verified out of sequence; an earlier expected token has not yet been received GSS_S_CONTEXT_EXPIRED The context has already expired GSS_S_NO_CONTEXT The context_handle parameter did not identify a valid context SEE ALSO
