NAME

gss_wrap - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gss.h>

OM_uint32 gss_wrap(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, int conf_req_flag, gss_qop_t qop_req, const gss_buffer_t input_message_buffer, int * conf_state, gss_buffer_t output_message_buffer);  

ARGUMENTS

OM_uint32 * minor_status
(Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle
(gss_ctx_id_t, read) Identifies the context on
  which the message will be sent.
int conf_req_flag
(boolean, read) Non-zero - Both confidentiality and
  integrity services are requested. Zero - Only integrity service is
  requested.
gss_qop_t qop_req
(gss_qop_t, read, optional) Specifies required quality of
  protection.  A mechanism-specific default may be requested by
  setting qop_req to GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT.  If an unsupported
  protection strength is requested, gss_wrap will return a
  major_status of GSS_S_BAD_QOP.
const gss_buffer_t input_message_buffer
(buffer, opaque, read) Message to be
  protected.
int * conf_state
(boolean, modify, optional) Non-zero -
  Confidentiality, data origin authentication and integrity
  services have been applied. Zero - Integrity and data origin
  services only has been applied.  Specify NULL if not required.
gss_buffer_t output_message_buffer
(buffer, opaque, modify) Buffer to receive
  protected message.  Storage associated with this message must be
  freed by the application after use with a call to
  gss_release_buffer().
 

DESCRIPTION

Attaches a cryptographic MIC and optionally encrypts the specified input_message. The output_message contains both the MIC and the message. The qop_req parameter allows a choice between several cryptographic algorithms, if supported by the chosen mechanism.

Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap() to provide "secure framing", implementations must support the wrapping of zero-length messages.  

RETURN VALUE

`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

`GSS_S_CONTEXT_EXPIRED`: The context has already expired.

`GSS_S_NO_CONTEXT`: The context_handle parameter did not identify a
 valid context.

`GSS_S_BAD_QOP`: The specified QOP is not supported by the mechanism.
