NAME

gss_import_name - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gss.h>

OM_uint32 gss_import_name(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_buffer_t input_name_buffer, const gss_OID input_name_type, gss_name_t * output_name);  

ARGUMENTS

OM_uint32 * minor_status
(Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
const gss_buffer_t input_name_buffer
(buffer, octet-string, read) Buffer containing
  contiguous string name to convert.
const gss_OID input_name_type
(Object ID, read, optional) Object ID specifying
  type of printable name.  Applications may specify either
  GSS_C_NO_OID to use a mechanism-specific default printable
  syntax, or an OID recognized by the GSS-API implementation to
  name a specific namespace.
gss_name_t * output_name
(gss_name_t, modify) Returned name in internal form.
  Storage associated with this name must be freed by the
  application after use with a call to gss_release_name().
 

DESCRIPTION

Convert a contiguous string name to internal form. In general, the internal name returned (via the output_name parameter) will not be an MN; the exception to this is if the input_name_type indicates that the contiguous string provided via the input_name_buffer parameter is of type GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, in which case the returned internal name will be an MN for the mechanism that exported the name.  

RETURN VALUE

`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE`: The input_name_type was unrecognized.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAME`: The input_name parameter could not be interpreted as a name of the specified type.

`GSS_S_BAD_MECH`: The input name-type was GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, but the mechanism contained within the input-name is not supported.
