Detailed Description

Handle attributes are used to control additional features of the GSI Proxy handle.

These features are operation independent.

Currently there are no attributes.

Typedef Documentation

 

typedef struct globus_l_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_s* globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t

Handle Attributes. A GSI Proxy handle attributes type is used to associate immutable parameter values with a Handle Management handle. A handle attributes object should be created with immutable parameters and then passed to the proxy handle init function globus_gsi_proxy_handle_init().

See also:

Handle Management

 

Function Documentation

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_init (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t * handle_attrs)

Initialize GSI Proxy Handle Attributes. Initialize proxy handle attributes, which can (and should) be associated with a proxy handle. For most purposes, these attributes should primarily be used by the proxy handle.

Currently, no attibute values are initialized.

Parameters:

handle_attrs The handle attributes structure to be initialized

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS unless an error occurred, in which case, a globus error object ID is returned

See also:

globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_destroy()

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_set_keybits (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int bits)

Set the length of the public key pair used by the proxy certificate. Parameters:

handle_attrs the attributes to set
bits the length to set it to (usually 1024)

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_set_init_prime (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int prime)

Set the initial prime number used for generating public key pairs in the RSA algorithm. Parameters:

handle_attrs The attributes to set
prime The prime number to set it to This value needs to be a prime number

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_set_signing_algorithm (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, EVP_MD * algorithm)

Sets the Signing Algorithm to be used to sign the certificate request. In most cases, the signing party will ignore this value, and sign with an algorithm of its choice.

Parameters:

handle_attrs The proxy handle to set the signing algorithm of
algorithm The signing algorithm to set

Returns:

Returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle is valid, otherwise an error object is returned.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_set_clock_skew_allowable (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int skew)

Sets the clock skew in minutes of the proxy cert request so that time differences between hosts won't cause problems. This value defaults to 5 minutes.

Parameters:

handle_attrs the handle_attrs containing the clock skew to be set
skew the amount to skew by (in seconds)

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle_attrs is valid - otherwise an error is returned.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_get_key_gen_callback (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, void(**)(int, int, void *) callback)

Get the public/private key generation callback that provides status during the generation of the keys. Parameters:

handle_attrs The handle_attrs to get the callback from
callback The callback from the handle attributes

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle_attrs is valid, otherwise an error is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_copy (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t a, globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t * b)

Make a copy of GSI Proxy handle attributes. Parameters:

a The handle attributes to copy
b The copy

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_destroy (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs)

Destroy the GSI Proxy handle attributes. Parameters:

handle_attrs The handle attributes to be destroyed.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

See also:

globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_init()

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_get_keybits (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int * bits)

Gets the length of the public key pair used by the proxy certificate. Parameters:

handle_attrs the attributes to get the key length from
bits the length of the key pair in bits

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_get_init_prime (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int * prime)

Get the initial prime number used for generating the public key pair in the RSA algorithm. Parameters:

handle_attrs The attributes to get the initial prime number from
prime The initial prime number taken from the attributes

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_get_signing_algorithm (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, EVP_MD ** algorithm)

Gets the Signing Algorithm to used to sign the certificate request. In most cases, the signing party will ignore this value, and sign with an algorithm of its choice.

Parameters:

handle_attrs The proxy handle_attrs to get the signing algorithm of
algorithm Parameter used to return the signing algorithm used

Returns:

Returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle is valid, otherwise an error object is returned.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_get_clock_skew_allowable (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, int * skew)

Get the allowable clock skew for the proxy certificate. Parameters:

handle_attrs The handle_attrs to get the clock skew from
skew The allowable clock skew (in seconds) to get from the proxy certificate request. This value gets set by the function, so it needs to be a pointer.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle_attrs is valid, otherwise an error is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_set_key_gen_callback (globus_gsi_proxy_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs, void(*)(int, int, void *) callback)

Set the public/private key generation callback that provides status during the generation of the keys. Parameters:

handle_attrs The handle_attrs to get the callback from
callback The callback from the handle attributes

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the handle_attrs is valid, otherwise an error is returned
