NAME

       gss_export_name - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gss.h>

       OM_uint32   gss_export_name(OM_uint32   *   minor_status,   const  gss_name_t  input_name,
       gss_buffer_t exported_name);

ARGUMENTS

       OM_uint32 * minor_status
                   (Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.

       const gss_name_t input_name
                   (gss_name_t, read) The MN to be exported.

       gss_buffer_t exported_name
                   (gss_buffer_t, octet-string, modify) The canonical
                     contiguous string form of input_name.  Storage associated with
                     this string must freed by the application after use with
                     gss_release_buffer().

DESCRIPTION

       To produce a canonical contiguous string representation of a mechanism name (MN), suitable
       for direct comparison (e.g. with memcmp) for use in authorization functions (e.g. matching
       entries in an access-control list).  The input_name parameter  must  specify  a  valid  MN
       (i.e.    an    internal    name    generated    by    gss_accept_sec_context()    or    by
       gss_canonicalize_name()).

RETURN VALUE

       `GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

       `GSS_S_NAME_NOT_MN`: The provided internal name was not a mechanism name.

       `GSS_S_BAD_NAME`: The provided internal name was ill-formed.

       `GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE`: The internal name was  of  a  type  not  supported  by  the  GSS-API
       implementation.
