Add a oid to the oid set, function does not make a copy of the oid, so the pointer to member_oid needs to be stable for the whole time oid_set is used.

If there is a duplicate member of the oid, the new member is not added to to the set.

Parameters:

member_oid member to add to the oid set
oid_set oid set to add the member too

Returns:

a gss_error code, see gss_display_status() about printing the error code.

If the input_name if of the GSS_C_NT_USER_NAME, and the Kerberos mechanism is specified, the resulting MN type is a GSS_KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL_NAME.

For more information about Internal names and mechanism names.

Parameters:

minor_status minor status code.
input_name name to covert, unchanged by gss_canonicalize_name().

GSSAPI_LIB_FUNCTION OM_uint32 GSSAPI_LIB_CALL gss_unwrap_iov (OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, int * conf_state, gss_qop_t * qop_state, gss_iov_buffer_desc * iov, int iov_count)

Decrypt or verifies the signature on the data.

GSSAPI_LIB_FUNCTION OM_uint32 GSSAPI_LIB_CALL gss_wrap (OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_const_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)

Wrap a message using either confidentiality (encryption + signature) or sealing (signature).

Parameters:

minor_status minor status code.
context_handle context handle.
conf_req_flag if non zero, confidentiality is requestd.
qop_req type of protection needed, in most cases it GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT should be passed in.
input_message_buffer messages to wrap
conf_state returns non zero if confidentiality was honoured.
output_message_buffer the resulting buffer, release with gss_release_buffer().

GSSAPI_LIB_FUNCTION OM_uint32 GSSAPI_LIB_CALL gss_wrap_iov (OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, int conf_req_flag, gss_qop_t qop_req, int * conf_state, gss_iov_buffer_desc * iov, int iov_count)

Encrypts or sign the data.

This is a more complicated version of gss_wrap(), it allows the caller to use AEAD data (signed header/trailer) and allow greater controll over where the encrypted data is placed.

The maximum packet size is gss_context_stream_sizes.max_msg_size.

The caller needs provide the folloing buffers when using in conf_req_flag=1 mode:

·
HEADER (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.header) { DATA or SIGN_ONLY } (optional, zero or more) PADDING (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.blocksize, if zero padding is zero, can be omitted) TRAILER (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.trailer)
·
on DCE-RPC mode, the caller can skip PADDING and TRAILER if the DATA elements is padded to a block bountry and header is of at least size gss_context_stream_sizes.header + gss_context_stream_sizes.trailer.

HEADER, PADDING, TRAILER will be shrunken to the size required to transmit any of them too large.

To generate gss_wrap() compatible packets, use: HEADER | DATA | PADDING | TRAILER

When used in conf_req_flag=0,

·
HEADER (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.header) { DATA or SIGN_ONLY } (optional, zero or more) PADDING (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.blocksize, if zero padding is zero, can be omitted) TRAILER (of size gss_context_stream_sizes.trailer)

The input sizes of HEADER, PADDING and TRAILER can be fetched using gss_wrap_iov_length() or gss_context_query_attributes().

GSSAPI_LIB_FUNCTION OM_uint32 GSSAPI_LIB_CALL gss_wrap_iov_length (OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, int conf_req_flag, gss_qop_t qop_req, int * conf_state, gss_iov_buffer_desc * iov, int iov_count)

Update the length fields in iov buffer for the types:

·
GSS_IOV_BUFFER_TYPE_HEADER
·
GSS_IOV_BUFFER_TYPE_PADDING
·
GSS_IOV_BUFFER_TYPE_TRAILER

Consider using gss_context_query_attributes() to fetch the data instead.
