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 authorization 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 application 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-specific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition.
