NAMEgss_get_mic, gss_sign — Calculate a cryptographic message integrity code (MIC) for a message; integrity service
SYNOPSIS#include < gssapi/gssapi.h>
gss_get_mic( OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, gss_qop_t qop_req, const gss_buffer_t message_buffer, gss_buffer_t msg_token);
gss_sign( OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, gss_qop_t qop_req, gss_buffer_t message_buffer, gss_buffer_t msg_token);
DESCRIPTIONGenerates a cryptographic MIC for the supplied message, and places the MIC in a token for transfer to the peer application. The qop_req parameter allows a choice between several cryptographic algorithms, if supported by the chosen mechanism.
Since some application-level protocols may wish to use tokens emitted by gss_wrap() to provide "secure framing", implementations must support derivation of MICs from zero-length messages.
The gss_sign() routine is an obsolete variant of gss_get_mic(). It is provided for backwards compatibility with applications using the GSS-API V1 interface. A distinct entrypoint (as opposed to #define) is provided, both to allow GSS-API V1 applications to link and to retain the slight parameter type differences between the obsolete versions of this routine and its current form.
- Mechanism specific status code.
- Identifies the context on which the message will be sent.
- Specifies requested quality of protection. Callers are encouraged, on portability grounds, to accept the default quality of protection offered by the chosen mechanism, which may be requested by specifying GSS_C_QOP_DEFAULT for this parameter. If an unsupported protection strength is requested, gss_get_mic() will return a major_status of GSS_S_BAD_QOP.
- Message to be protected.
- Buffer to receive token. The application must free storage associated with this buffer after use with a call to gss_release_buffer().
- Successful completion
- The context has already expired
- The context_handle parameter did not identify a valid context
- The specified QOP is not supported by the mechanism
