SYNOPSIS


.In gssapi/gssapi.h OM_uint32
.Fo gss_canonicalize_name OM_uint32 *minor_status const gss_name_t input_name const gss_OID mech_type gss_name_t *output_name
.Fc

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.

PARAMETERS

minor_status
  Mechanism specific status code.
input_name The name for which a canonical form is desired.
mech_type The authentication mechanism for which the canonical form of the name is desired. The desired mechanism must be specified explicitly;
no default is provided.
output_name The resultant canonical name. Storage associated with this name must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_name.

RETURN VALUES

GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion.
GSS_S_BAD_MECH The identified mechanism is not supported.
GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE
  The provided internal name contains no elements that could be processed by the specified mechanism.
GSS_S_BAD_NAME The provided internal name was ill-formed.
