GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error object id

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_user_id_string_unix (char ** user_id_string)

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS unless an error occurred

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_username_unix (char ** username)

Get the username of the current user. Parameters:

username This parameter will contain the current user name upon a successful return. It is the users responsibility to free memory allocated for this return value.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS unless an error occurred

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_proc_id_string_unix (char ** proc_id_string)

Get a unique string representing the current process. This is just the pid converted to a string.

Parameters:

proc_id_string A unique string representing the process

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS unless an error occurred

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_make_absolute_path_for_filename_unix (char * filename, char ** absolute_path)

Make the filename into an absolute path string based on the current working directory. Parameters:

filename the filename to get the absolute path of.

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_cert_dir_unix (char ** cert_dir)

Get the Trusted Certificate Directory containing the trusted Certificate Authority certificates. This directory is determined in the order shown below. Failure in one method results in attempting the next.

1.
X509_CERT_DIR environment variable - if this is set, the trusted certificates will be searched for in that directory. This variable allows the end user to specify the location of trusted certificates.
2.
$HOME/.globus/certificates - If this directory exists, and the previous methods of determining the trusted certs directory failed, this directory will be used.
3.
/etc/grid-security/certificates - This location is intended to be independent of the globus installation ($GLOBUS_LOCATION), and is generally only writeable by the host system administrator.
4.
$GLOBUS_LOCATION/share/certificates

Parameters:

cert_dir The trusted certificates directory

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if no error occurred, and a sufficient trusted certificates directory was found. Otherwise, an error object identifier returned.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_user_cert_filename_unix (char ** user_cert, char ** user_key)

Get the User Certificate Filename based on the current user's environment. The following locations are searched for cert and key files in order:

1.
environment variables X509_USER_CERT and X509_USER_KEY
2.
$HOME/.globus/usercert.pem and $HOME/.globus/userkey.pem
3.
$HOME/.globus/usercred.p12 - this is a PKCS12 credential

Parameters:

user_cert pointer the filename of the user certificate
user_key pointer to the filename of the user key

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the cert and key files were found in one of the possible locations, otherwise an error object identifier is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_host_cert_filename_unix (char ** host_cert, char ** host_key)

Get the Host Certificate and Key Filenames based on the current user's environment. The host cert and key are searched for in the following locations (in order):

1.
X509_USER_CERT and X509_USER_KEY environment variables
2.
registry keys x509_user_cert and x509_user_key in software\Globus\GSI
3.
\<GLOBUS_LOCATION\>\etc\host[cert|key].pem
4.
\<users home directory\>\.globus\host[cert|key].pem

Parameters:

host_cert pointer to the host certificate filename
host_key pointer to the host key filename

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the host cert and key were found, otherwise an error object identifier is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_service_cert_filename_unix (char * service_name, char ** service_cert, char ** service_key)

Get the Service Certificate Filename based on the current user's environment. The host cert and key are searched for in the following locations (in order):

1.
X509_USER_CERT and X509_USER_KEY environment variables
2.
\/etc\/grid-security\/{service_name}\/{service_name}[cert|key].pem
3.
GLOBUS_LOCATION\/etc\/{service_name}\/{service_name}[cert|key].pem So for example, if my service was named: myservice, the location of the certificate would be: GLOBUS_LOCATION\/etc\/myservice\/myservicecert.pem
4.
\<users home\>\/.globus\/{service_name}\/{service_name}[cert|key].pem

Parameters:

service_name The name of the service which allows us to determine the locations of cert and key files to look for
service_cert pointer to the host certificate filename
service_key pointer to the host key filename

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the service cert and key were found, otherwise an error object identifier

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_proxy_filename_unix (char ** user_proxy, globus_gsi_proxy_file_type_t proxy_file_type)

Get the proxy cert filename based on the following search order: .PD 0

1.
X509_USER_PROXY environment variable - This environment variable is set by the at run time for the specific application. If the proxy_file_type variable is set to GLOBUS_PROXY_OUTPUT (a proxy filename for writing is requested), and the X509_USER_PROXY is set, this will be the resulting value of the user_proxy filename string passed in. If the proxy_file_type is set to GLOBUS_PROXY_INPUT and X509_USER_PROXY is set, but the file it points to does not exist, or has some other readability issues, the function will continue checking using the other methods available.

Parameters:

user_proxy the proxy filename of the user
