NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ModuleManagerAuthenticate  - Module manager authentication

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       # include <cdsa/mds.h>

       CSSM_RETURN       CSSMAPI        ModuleManagerAuthenticate
       (CSSM_KEY_HIERARCHY  KeyHierarchy,  const  CSSM_GUID *CssmGuid,

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

       Common Security Services Manager library (libcssm.so)

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  CSSM_KEY_HIERARCHY  flag  indicating  which  embedded
       key(s) CSSM should use when verifying the integrity of the
       module manager.  A CSSM_GUID value identifying the calling
       CSSM. The elective module manager can use  this  value  to
       locate  the  signed  manifest  credentials  for  CSSM.   A
       CSSM_GUID value identifying the  application  who  invoked
       the  calling  CSSM.   The  elective module manager can use
       this value to locate the signed manifest  credentials  for
       the  application.   A  set  of  function pointers for EMMdefined
  functions  used  by  CSSM  to  communicate  state
       changes  related to module attach and module detach operations.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This function should perform the elective module manager's
       half  of the bilateral authentication procedure with CSSM.
       The CssmGuid is used to locate the CSSM's  credentials  to
       be  verified.  The  credentials are a zipped, signed manifest.

       The KeyHierarchy indicates which public key should be used
       as the root when checking the integrity of the module manager.
 The AppGuid is  used  to  locate  the  application's
       signed  manifest credentials.  The elective module manager
       must check the application's  credentials  to  verify  the
       application's   authorization.   If   no   privileges  are
       requested, then the application is not required to provide
       a GUID nor a set of signed manifest credentials.

       Upon  successful  completion,  the elective module manager
       returns its function table to the calling  CSSM.  The  EMM
       function  table  contains the set of EMM entry points that
       CSSM uses to notify  the  module  manager  of  significant
       events  such  as  module attach and module detach requests
       issued by an application, and event  notifications  issued
       by other module managers.

       This function symbol must be exported by the elective module
 manager, so CSSM can invoke this function upon completion
 of the loading process.

       This  function  is  the  first  module  manager  interface
       invoked by CSSM after loading and invoking the main  entry
       point.  In  particular, the elective module manager's initialize
 function is invoked by CSSM  after  this  function
       has successfully completed execution.

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

       A  CSSM_RETURN  value  indicating  success or specifying a
       particular error condition. The  value  CSSM_OK  indicates
       success. All other values represent an error condition.
