NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     publickey, getpublickey, getsecretkey -- get public or secret key

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     RPC Service Library (librpcsvc, -lrpcsvc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <rpc/rpc.h>
     #include <rpc/key_prot.h>

     getpublickey(char netname[MAXNETNAMELEN+1],
	 char publickey[HEXKEYBYTES+1]);

     getsecretkey(char netname[MAXNETNAMELEN+1],
	 char secretkey[HEXKEYBYTES+1], char *passwd);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     These routines are used to get public and secret keys from the YP database.
  The getsecretkey() function has an extra argument, passwd, which
     is used to decrypt the encrypted secret key stored in the database.  Both
     routines return 1 if they are successful in finding the key, 0 otherwise.
     The keys are returned as NULL-terminated, hexadecimal strings.  If the
     password supplied to getsecretkey() fails to decrypt the secret key, the
     routine will return 1 but the secretkey argument will be a NULL string
