OM_uint32 globus_gss_assist_acquire_cred (OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_cred_usage_t cred_usage, gss_cred_id_t * output_cred_handle)

Called once at the start of the process, to obtain the credentials the process is running under. The

Parameters:

minor_status pointer for return code
cred_usage GSS_C_INITIATE, GSS_C_ACCEPT, or GSS_C_BOTH
output_cred_handle Pointer to the returned handle. This needs to be passed to many gss routines.

Returns:

GSS_S_COMPLETE on success Other GSSAPI return codes

OM_uint32 globus_gss_assist_acquire_cred_ext (OM_uint32 * minor_status, char * desired_name_char, OM_uint32 time_req, const gss_OID_set desired_mechs, gss_cred_usage_t cred_usage, gss_cred_id_t * output_cred_handle, gss_OID_set * actual_mechs, OM_uint32 * time_rec)

Called once at the start of the process, to obtain the credentials the process is running under. All the parameters of the gss_acquire_cred(), except the desired_name is a string of the form: [type:]name. This will be imported with the type.

Returns:

GSS_S_COMPLETE on success Other GSSPI return codes

OM_uint32 globus_gss_assist_read_vhost_cred_dir (OM_uint32 * minor_status, const char * dir, gss_cred_id_t ** output_credentials_array, size_t * output_credentials_array_size)

Acquire all GSSAPI credentials in a directory. This function loads all of the credentials available in the vhost credential directory and returns them in its output parameters.

The credentials directory is expected to contain a directory for each credential, with the directory containing cert.pem and privkey.pem files.

If the dir parameter is NULL, then this function uses the X509_VHOST_CRED_DIR environment variable, or the default /etc/grid-security/vhosts/ if it is not set.

Parameters:

minor_status Mechanism-specific error code
dir Optional directory name to override X509_VHOST_CRED_DIR
output_credentials_array Pointer to a dynamic array allocated to hold credentials
output_credentials_array_size Pointer to be set to the resulting size (in bytes) of the output_credentials_array
