Function Documentation

globus_result_t globus_gsi_authorize (globus_gsi_authz_handle_t handle, const void * action, const void * object, globus_gsi_authz_cb_t callback, void * callback_arg)

Start the authorization decision-making process. Processes an authorization decision by calling the GLOBUS_GSI_AUTHORIZE_ASYNC function named in the authorization configuration file. The parameters to this function are passed to the authorization callout. Once the authorization decision is made, the callback function will be called, with the result and the callback_arg passed to it.

Parameters:

handle Pointer to an authorization handle
action Action to authorize
object Object that the action pertains to.
callback Callback function to call when authorization completes
callback_arg Argument to callback function

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a Globus error object on failure.

globus_result_t globus_gsi_authz_get_authorization_identity (globus_gsi_authz_handle_t handle, char ** identity_ptr, globus_gsi_authz_cb_t callback, void * callback_arg)

Query for authorization identity. Query for authorization identity by calling the GLOBUS_GSI_GET_AUTHORIZATION_IDENTITY callout.

Parameters:

handle The handle that is to be used for the identity check.
identity_ptr The authorization identity determined by the authorization handle. This is must be freed by the caller. If the value is NULL (and this function returned GLOBUS_SUCCESS), the caller should use the authenticated identity.
callback Callback function to call when identity is determined.
callback_arg Argument to callback function.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

globus_result_t globus_gsi_authz_handle_destroy (globus_gsi_authz_handle_t handle, globus_gsi_authz_cb_t callback, void * callback_arg)

Destroy an authz handle. Initialize an authorization handle by calling the GLOBUS_GSI_AUTHZ_HANDLE_DESTROY function named in the authorization configuration file. Once the initialization is complete, the callback function is called, with the result and the callback_arg passed to it.

Parameters:

handle The handle that is to be destroyed
callback Callback function to call when handle is destroyed
callback_arg Argument to callback function

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

globus_result_t globus_gsi_authz_handle_init (globus_gsi_authz_handle_t * handle, const char * service_name, const gss_ctx_id_t context, globus_gsi_authz_cb_t callback, void * callback_arg)

Initialize an authorization handle. Initialize an authorization handle by calling the GLOBUS_GSI_AUTHZ_HANDLE_INIT function named in the authorization configuration file. The parameters to this function are passed to the authorization callout. Once the initialization is complete, the callback function is called, with the result and the callback_arg passed to it.

Parameters:

handle Pointer to the handle that is to be initialized
service_name Service to authorize access to
context Security context used to contact the service
callback Callback function to call when authz handle init completes
callback_arg Argument to callback function

Return values:

The globus_gsi_authz_handle_init() function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a Globus error object on failure

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cancel_authz (globus_gsi_authz_handle_t handle)

Cancel Authorization. Cancel an authorization decision by calling the GLOBUS_GSI_AUTHZ_CANCEL function named in the authorization configuration file.

Parameters:

handle The authorization handle to cancel
