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

NAME
gss_wrap - attach a cryptographic message SYNOPSIS
cc -flag ... file ...-lgss [library ...] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_wrap(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, int conf_req_flag, gss_qop_t qop_req, const gss_buffer_t input_message_buffer, int *conf_state, gss_buffer_t output_message_buffer); DESCRIPTION
The gss_wrap() function attaches a cryptographic MIC and optionally encrypts the specified input_message. The output_message contains both the MIC and the message. The qop_req parameter allows a choice between several cryptographic algorithms, if supported by the chosen mecha- nism. Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap() to provide secure framing, the GSS-API supports the wrapping of zero-length messages. PARAMETERS
The parameter descriptions for gss_wrap() follow: minor_status The status code returned by the underlying mechanism. context_handle Identifies the context on which the message will be sent. conf_req_flag If the value of conf_req_flag is non-zero, both confidentiality and integrity services are requested. If the value is zero, then only integrity service is requested. qop_req Specifies the required quality of protection. A mechanism-specific default may be requested by setting qop_req to GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT. If an unsupported protection strength is requested, gss_wrap() will return a major_status of GSS_S_BAD_QOP. input_message_buffer The message to be protected. conf_state If the value of conf_state is non-zero, confidentiality, data origin authentication, and integrity services have been applied. If the value is zero, then integrity services have been applied. Specify NULL if this parameter is not required. output_message_buffer The buffer to receive the protected message. Storage associated with this message must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_buffer(3GSS). ERRORS
gss_wrap() may return the following status codes: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. 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_BAD_QOP The specified QOP is not supported by the mechanism. GSS_S_FAILURE The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no specific GSS status code is defined. The mecha- nism-specific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
gss_get_mic - calculate a cryptographic message SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lgss [ library... ] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_get_mic(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, gss_qop_t qop_req, const gss_buffer_t message_buffer, gss_buffer_t msg_token); DESCRIPTION
The gss_get_mic() function generates a cryptographic MIC for the supplied message, and places the MIC in a token for transfer to the peer application. The qop_req parameter allows a choice between several cryptographic algorithms, if supported by the chosen mechanism. Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap(3GSS) to provide secure framing, the GSS-API allows MICs to be derived from zero-length messages. PARAMETERS
The parameter descriptions for gss_get_mic() follow: minor_status The status code returned by the underlying mechanism. context_handle Identifies the context on which the message will be sent. qop_req Specifies the requested quality of protection. Callers are encouraged, on portability grounds, to accept the default quality of protection offered by the chosen mechanism, which may be requested by specifying GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT for this parameter. If an unsupported protection strength is requested, gss_get_mic() will return a major_status of GSS_S_BAD_QOP. message_buffer The message to be protected. msg_token The buffer to receive the token. Storage associated with this message must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_buffer(3GSS). ERRORS
gss_get_mic() may return the following status codes: GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion. 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_BAD_QOP The specified QOP is not supported by the mechanism. 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
