NAMEgss_display_name — Convert internal-form name to text
SYNOPSIS#include < gssapi/gssapi.h>
gss_display_name( OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name, gss_buffer_t output_name_buffer, gss_OID *output_name_type);
DESCRIPTIONAllows an application to obtain a textual representation of an opaque internal-form name for display purposes. The syntax of a printable name is defined by the GSS-API implementation.
If input_name denotes an anonymous principal, the implementation should return the gss_OID value GSS_C_NT_ANONYMOUS as the output_name_type, and a textual name that is syntactically distinct from all valid supported printable names in output_name_buffer.
If input_name was created by a call to gss_import_name(), specifying GSS_C_NO_OID as the name-type, implementations that employ lazy conversion between name types may return GSS_C_NO_OID via the output_name_type parameter.
- Mechanism specific status code.
- Name to be displayed.
- Buffer to receive textual name string. The application must free storage associated with this name after use with a call to gss_release_buffer().
- The type of the returned name. The returned gss_OID will be a pointer into static storage, and should be treated as read-only by the caller (in particular, the application should not attempt to free it). Specify NULL if not required.
- Successful completion
- input_name was ill-formed
