NAME

gss_export_name - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gss.h>

OM_uint32 gss_export_name(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name, gss_buffer_t exported_name);  

ARGUMENTS

OM_uint32 * minor_status
(Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
const gss_name_t input_name
(gss_name_t, read) The MN to be exported.
gss_buffer_t exported_name
(gss_buffer_t, octet-string, modify) The canonical
  contiguous string form of input_name.  Storage associated with
  this string must freed by the application after use with
  gss_release_buffer().
 

DESCRIPTION

To produce a canonical contiguous string representation of a mechanism name (MN), suitable for direct comparison (e.g. with memcmp) for use in authorization functions (e.g. matching entries in an access-control list). The input_name parameter must specify a valid MN (i.e. an internal name generated by gss_accept_sec_context() or by gss_canonicalize_name()).  

RETURN VALUE

`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

`GSS_S_NAME_NOT_MN`: The provided internal name was not a mechanism name.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAME`: The provided internal name was ill-formed.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE`: The internal name was of a type not supported by the GSS-API implementation.
