DESCRIPTION


The gss_indicate_mechs() function enables an application to determine
available underlying security mechanisms.

PARAMETERS


The parameter descriptions for gss_indicate_mechs() follow:

minor_status
A mechanism-specific status code.


mech_set
Set of supported mechanisms. The returned gss_OID_set
value will be a dynamically-allocated OID set that should
be released by the caller after use with a call to
gss_release_oid_set(3GSS).


ERRORS


The gss_indicate_mechs() 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.
