NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       gss_inquire_names_for_mech - Identify name types supported
       by a specific security mechanism.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

       OM_uint32 gss_inquire_names_for_mech(
               OM_uint32 * minor_status,
               const gss_OID mechanism,
               gss_OID_set * name_types );

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Kerberos 5 error code.  Security mechanism to be  queried.
       Object identifier (OID) set of name types supported by the
       specified mechanism.

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The gss_inquire_names_for_mech() function  identifies  the
       name  types  that are supported by a particular mechanism.
       Since Kerberos 5 is the only security mechanism  supported
       by  the  HP  Application  Security  Toolkit, this function
       returns   the   name   types    Kerberos    5    supports.
       gss_import_name()  contains  a  list of the supported name

       This function can be used to verify that a  name  type  is
       valid  or  to  generate a list of name types from which to

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       GSS_S_BAD_MECH                  xx01xxxx
       GSS_S_BAD_NAME                  xx02xxxx
       GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE              xx03xxxx
