       mech, qop - mechanism and QOP files


       The  /etc/gss/mech and /etc/gss/qop files contain tables showing installed security mecha-
       nisms and the Quality of Protection (QOP) associated with them, respectively. As  security
       mechanisms  are installed on the system, entries are added to these two files. Contents of
       these files may be accessed either manually or  programmatically.  For  example,  manually
       with  cat(1)  or  more(1), or programmatically with either rpc_gss_get_mechanisms(3NSL) or

       The order of entries in the /etc/gss/mech file is significant: the order  should  be  from
       the most preferred to the least preferred mechanisms.

       The /etc/gss/mech file contains five fields:

       mechanism name

	   ASCII string representing the mechanism.

       object identifier

	   RPC OID for this mechanism.

       shared library

	   Shared library which implements the services provided by this mechanism.

       kernel module

	   Kernel module which implements the services provided by this mechanism.

       library options (optional field)

	   Optional  parameters  that are interpreted by the individual mechanism with which they
	   are associated. Specific supported options are described in the documentation for  the
	   individual mechanism, if any. Not all mechanisms have support for optional parameters.
	   library options must be enclosed in brackets ([ ]) so they may be differentiated  from
	   the optional kernel module entries.

       The /etc/gss/qop file contains three fields:

       QOP string	  Name, in ASCII, of this Quality of Protection.

       QOP value	  Numeric value by which RPC identifies this QOP.

       mechanism name	  ASCII  string representing the mechanism with which this QOP is associ-

       Example 1 A Typical Entry in /etc/gss/mech

       This is a typical entry in a /etc/gss/mech file:

	 kerberosv5	1.2.840.113554.1.2.2	 mech_krb5.so	kmech_krb5

       Example 2 A Typical Entry in /etc/gss/qop

       This is a typical entry in a /etc/gss/qop file:

	 GSS_KRB5_CONF_C_QOP_DES  0    kerberosv5

       rpc(3NSL), rpc_gss_get_mechanisms(3NSL), rpc_gss_get_mech_info(3NSL), rpcsec_gss(3NSL)
