NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       gss_inquire_mechs_for_name  - Identify security mechanisms
       that can process a given name.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

       OM_uint32 gss_inquire_mechs_for_name(
               OM_uint32 * minor_status,
               const gss_name_t input_name,
               gss_OID_set * mech_types );

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Kerberos 5 error code.  Name to be queried.

              The application must  obtain  the  name  beforehand
              using a function such as gss_import_name().  Object
              identifier (OID) set of  security  mechanisms  that
              may support the specified name.

              The  returned OID set must be freed by the application
    after    use     with     a     call     to

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  gss_inquire_mechs_for_name()  function identifies the
       mechanisms that can process the specified name. Since Kerberos
 5 is the only security mechanism supported by the HP
       Application Security Toolkit, this function always returns
       it as the only security mechanism in the OID set.

       This  function  is intended for use with applications that
       are designed for multiple mechanisms.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       GSS_S_BAD_NAME                  xx02xxxx
       GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE              xx03xxxx
       GSS_S_COMPLETE                  00000000
       GSS_S_FAILURE                   xx0Dxxxx
