Function Documentation

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_set_key_permissions_win32 (char * filename)

Set the file permissions of a file to read only by the user which are the permissions that should be set for all private keys. Parameters:

filename

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error object id

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_file_exists_win32 (const char * filename)

Check that the file exists. Parameters:

filename the file to check

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS (even if the file doesn't exist) - in some abortive cases an error object identifier is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_dir_exists_win32 (const char * filename)

Check that the directory exists. Parameters:

filename the file to check

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the directory exists, otherwise an error object identifier.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_current_working_dir_win32 (char ** working_dir)

Get the current working directory on a windows system. Parameters:

working_dir The working directory to get

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if no error occurred, otherwise an error object ID is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_make_absolute_path_for_filename_win32 (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.
absolute_path The resulting absolute path

Returns:

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_split_dir_and_filename_win32 (char * full_filename, char ** dir_string, char ** filename_string)

Split the directory and filename portions of a filename string into two separate strings. Parameters:

full_filename
dir_string
filename_string

Returns:

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_cert_dir_win32 (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.
x509_cert_dir registry key - If this registry key is set on windows, the directory it points to should contain the trusted certificates. The path to the registry key is software\Globus\GSI
3.
\<user home directory>\.globus\certificates - If this directory exists, and the previous methods of determining the trusted certs directory failed, this directory will be used.
4.
Host Trusted Cert Dir - This location is intended to be independent of the globus installation ($GLOBUS_LOCATION), and is generally only writeable by the host system administrator.
5.
Globus Install Trusted Cert Dir - this is $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_win32 (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.
registry keys x509_user_cert and x509_user_key in software\Globus\GSI
3.
<users home directory>\.globus\usercert.pem and <users home directory>\.globus\userkey.pem
4.
<users home directory>\.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_win32 (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_win32 (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.
registry keys x509_user_cert and x509_user_key in software\Globus\GSI
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_win32 (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.

2.
check the registry key: x509_user_proxy. Just as with the environment variable, if the registry key is set, and proxy_file_type is GLOBUS_PROXY_OUTPUT, the string set to be the proxy filename will be this registry key's value. If proxy_file_type is GLOBUS_PROXY_INPUT, and the file doesn't exist, the function will check the next method for the proxy's filename.

3.
Check the default location for the proxy file. The default location should be set to reside in the temp directory on that host, with the filename taking the format: x509_u<user id> where <user id> is some unique string for that user on the host

Parameters:

user_proxy the proxy filename of the user
proxy_file_type Switch for determining whether to return a existing proxy filename or if a filename suitable for creating a proxy should be returned

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error object identifier

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_get_ca_cert_files_win32 (char * ca_cert_dir, globus_fifo_t * ca_cert_list)

Gets a list of trusted CA certificate filenames in a trusted CA certificate directory. Parameters:

ca_cert_dir The trusted CA certificate directory to get the filenames from
ca_cert_list The resulting list of CA certificate filenames. This is a a globus list structure.

globus_result_t globus_gsi_sysconfig_remove_all_owned_files_win32 (char * default_filename)

Parameters:

default_filename The filename of the default proxy

Checks whether the current user is root. Parameters:

is_superuser 1 if the user is the superuser 0 if not

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if no error occurred, otherwise an error object ID is returned
