GSS_CREATE_EMPTY_OID_SET(3GSS) Generic Security Services API Library Functions


NAME


gss_create_empty_oid_set - create an object-identifier set containing no
object identifiers

SYNOPSIS


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

OM_uint32 gss_create_empty_oid_set(OM_uint32 *minor_status,
gss_OID_set *oid_set);


DESCRIPTION


The gss_create_empty_oid_set() function creates an object-identifier set
containing no object identifiers to which members may be subsequently
added using the gss_add_oid_set_member(3GSS) function. These functions
can be used to construct sets of mechanism object identifiers for input
to gss_acquire_cred(3GSS).

PARAMETERS


The parameter descriptions for gss_create_empty_oid_set() follow:

minor_status
Mechanism-specific status code


oid_set
Empty object identifier set. The function will allocate
the gss_OID_set_desc object, which the application must
free after use with a call to gss_release_oid_set(3GSS).


ERRORS


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

GSS_S_COMPLETE
Successful completion


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.
