NAME
gss_export_name - convert a mechanism name to export form SYNOPSIS
cc [flag ...] file... -lgss [library ...] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_export_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name, gss_buffer_t exported_name); DESCRIPTION
The gss_export_name() function allows a GSS-API internal name to be converted into a mechanism-specific name. The function produces a canonical contiguous string representation of a mechanism name, suitable for direct comparison, with memcmp(3C), or for use in authoriza- tion functions, matching entries in an access-control list. The input_name parameter must specify a valid mechanism name, that is, an internal name generated by gss_accept_sec_context(3GSS) or by gss_canonicalize_name(3GSS). PARAMETERS
The parameter descriptions for gss_export_name() follow: minor_status A mechanism-specific status code. input_name The mechanism name to be exported. exported_name The canonical contiguous string form of input_name. Storage associated with this string must freed by the applica- tion after use with gss_release_buffer(3GSS). ERRORS
The gss_export_name() function may return the following status codes: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. GSS_S_NAME_NOT_MN The provided internal name was not a mechanism name. 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_inquire_names_for_mech - list the name-types supported by the specified mechanism SYNOPSIS
cc [flag ...] file... -lgss [library ...] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_inquire_names_for_mech(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_OID mechanism, gss_OID_set *name_types); DESCRIPTION
The gss_inquire_names_for_mech() function returns the set of name-types supported by the specified mechanism. PARAMETERS
The parameter descriptions for gss_inquire_names_for_mech() follow: minor_status A mechanism-specific status code. mechanism The mechanism to be interrogated. name_types Set of name-types supported by the specified mechanism. The returned OID set must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_oid_set(3GSS). ERRORS
The gss_inquire_names_for_mech() function may return the following values: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. 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
