NAME

gss_canonicalize_name - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gss.h>

OM_uint32 gss_canonicalize_name(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name, const gss_OID mech_type, gss_name_t * output_name);  

ARGUMENTS

OM_uint32 * minor_status
(Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
const gss_name_t input_name
(gss_name_t, read) The name for which a canonical form
  is desired.
const gss_OID mech_type
(Object ID, read) The authentication mechanism for
  which the canonical form of the name is desired.  The desired
  mechanism must be specified explicitly; no default is provided.
gss_name_t * output_name
(gss_name_t, modify) The resultant canonical name.
  Storage associated with this name must be freed by the
  application after use with a call to gss_release_name().
 

DESCRIPTION

Generate a canonical mechanism name (MN) from an arbitrary internal name. The mechanism name is the name that would be returned to a context acceptor on successful authentication of a context where the initiator used the input_name in a successful call to gss_acquire_cred, specifying an OID set containing mech_type as its only member, followed by a call to gss_init_sec_context(), specifying mech_type as the authentication mechanism.  

RETURN VALUE

`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.
