NAME


gss_compare_name - compare two internal-form names

SYNOPSIS


cc [flag ...] file... -lgss [library ...]
#include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

OM_uint32 gss_compare_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status,
const gss_name_t name1,const gss_name_t name2,
int *name_equal);


DESCRIPTION


The gss_compare_name() function allows an application to compare two
internal-form names to determine whether they refer to the same entity.


If either name presented to gss_compare_name() denotes an anonymous
principal, the routines indicate that the two names do not refer to the
same identity.

PARAMETERS


The parameter descriptions for gss_compare_name() follow:

minor_status
Mechanism-specific status code.


name1
Internal-form name.


name2
Internal-form name.


name_equal
If non-zero, the names refer to same entity. If 0, the
names refer to different entities. Strictly, the names
are not known to refer to the same identity.


ERRORS


The gss_compare_name() function may return the following status codes:

GSS_S_COMPLETE
Successful completion.


GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE
The two names were of incomparable types.


GSS_S_BAD_NAME
One or both of name1 or name2 was ill-formed.


GSS_S_FAILURE
The underlying mechanism detected an error for
which no specific GSS status code is defined. The
mechanism-specific status code reported by means of
the minor_status parameter details the error
condition.
