RPC_GSS_SECCREATE(3) Library Functions Manual RPC_GSS_SECCREATE(3)

NAME

rpc_gss_seccreate
create a security context using the RPCSEC_GSS protocol

SYNOPSIS

#include <rpc/rpcsec_gss.h>

AUTH *
rpc_gss_seccreate(CLIENT *clnt, const char *principal, const char *mechanism, rpc_gss_service_t service, const char *qop, rpc_gss_options_req_t *options_req, rpc_gss_options_ret_t *options_ret);

DESCRIPTION

This function is used to establish a security context between an application and a remote peer using the RPSEC_GSS protocol.

PARAMETERS

clnt
An RPC handle which is connected to the remote peer
principal
The name of the service principal on the remote peer. For instance, a principal such as “nfs@server.example.com” might be used by an application which needs to contact an NFS server
mechanism
The name of the GSS_API mechanism to use for the new security context. "kerberos_v5" is currently the only supported mechanism.
service
Type of service requested.
rpc_gss_svc_default
The default - typically the same as rpc_gss_svc_none.
rpc_gss_svc_none
RPC headers only are integrity protected by a checksum.
rpc_gss_svc_integrity
RPC headers and data are integrity protected by a checksum.
rpc_gss_svc_privacy
RPC headers are integrity protected by a checksum and data is encrypted.
qop
The name of the Quality of Protection to use for the new security context, or NULL to use the default QOP. "GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT" is currently the only supported QOP.
options_req
Extra security context options to be passed to the underlying GSS-API mechanism. Pass NULL to supply default values.
options_ret
Various values returned by the underlying GSS-API mechanism. Pass NULL if these values are not required.

RETURN VALUES

If the security context was created successfully, a pointer to an AUTH structure that represents the context is returned. To use this security context for subsequent RPC calls, set clnt->cl_auth to this value.

AVAILABILITY

The rpc_gss_seccreate() function is part of libtirpc.
