 gss_canonicalize_name(3)                           gss_canonicalize_name(3)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      gss_canonicalize_name() - convert an internal name to an internal
      mechanism name (MN) representation of an opaque internal name

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <gssapi.h>

      OM_uint32  gss_canonicalize_name (
                OM_uint32 *minor_status,
                const gss_name_t input_name,
                const gss_OID *mech_type,
                gss_name_t *output_name)

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The gss_canonicalize_name() routine generate a canonical mechanism
      name (MN) from an arbitrary internal name. The mechanism name is the
      name that would be returned to a context acceptor on successful
      authentication of a context where the initiator used the input_name in
      a successful call to gss_acquire_cred(), specifying an Object
      Identifier (OID) set containing mech_type as its only member, followed
      by a call to gss_init_sec_context(), specifying mech_type as the
      authentication mechanism.

    Input Parameters    [Toc]    [Back]
      input_name            Specifies the name for which a canonical form is

      mech_type             The authentication mechanism for which the
                            canonical form of the name is desired. The
                            desired mechanism must be specified explicitly;
                            no default is provided.

    Output Parameters    [Toc]    [Back]
      output_name           The resultant canonical name.

      minor_status          Returns a status code from the security

 STATUS CODES    [Toc]    [Back]
      The following status codes can be returned:

      GSS_S_COMPLETE           The routine was completed successfully.

      GSS_S_BAD_MECH           The identified mechanism is not supported.

      GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE       The provided internal name contains no
                               elements that could be processed by the
                               specified mechanism.

      GSS_S_BAD_NAME           The provided internal name was ill-formed.

      GSS_S_FAILURE            The routine failed.  Check the minor_status
                               parameter for details.
