NAMEgss_import_name — Convert a contiguous string name to internal-form
SYNOPSIS#include < gssapi/gssapi.h>
gss_import_name( OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_buffer_t input_name_buffer, const gss_OID input_name_type, gss_name_t *output_name);
DESCRIPTIONConvert a contiguous string name to internal form. In general, the internal name returned (via the output_name parameter) will not be an MN; the exception to this is if the input_name_type indicates that the contiguous string provided via the input_name_buffer parameter is of type GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, in which case the returned internal name will be an MN for the mechanism that exported the name.
- Mechanism specific status code.
- Buffer containing contiguous string name to convert.
- Object ID specifying type of printable name. Applications may specify either GSS_C_NO_OID to use a mechanism-specific default printable syntax, or an OID recognized by the GSS-API implementation to name a specific namespace.
- Returned name in internal form. Storage associated with this name must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_name().
- Successful completion
- The input_name_type was unrecognized
- The input_name parameter could not be interpreted as a name of the specified type
- The input name-type was GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, but the mechanism contained within the input-name is not supported

- Generic Security Service Application Program Interface Version 2, Update 1
- RFC 2744
- Generic Security Service API Version 2 : C-bindings
HISTORYThe gss_import_name function first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.
