NAME

       gss_inquire_context - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gss.h>

       OM_uint32 gss_inquire_context(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle,
       gss_name_t * src_name,  gss_name_t  *  targ_name,  OM_uint32  *  lifetime_rec,  gss_OID  *
       mech_type, OM_uint32 * ctx_flags, int * locally_initiated, int * open);

ARGUMENTS

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

       const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle
                   (gss_ctx_id_t, read) A handle that refers to the
                     security context.

       gss_name_t * src_name
                   (gss_name_t, modify, optional) The name of the context
                     initiator.  If the context was established using anonymous
                     authentication, and if the application invoking
                     gss_inquire_context is the context acceptor, an anonymous name
                     will be returned.  Storage associated with this name must be
                     freed by the application after use with a call to
                     gss_release_name().  Specify NULL if not required.

       gss_name_t * targ_name
                   (gss_name_t, modify, optional) The name of the context
                     acceptor.  Storage associated with this name must be freed by the
                     application after use with a call to gss_release_name().  If the
                     context acceptor did not authenticate itself, and if the
                     initiator did not specify a target name in its call to
                     gss_init_sec_context(), the value GSS_C_NO_NAME will be returned.
                     Specify NULL if not required.

       OM_uint32 * lifetime_rec
                   (Integer, modify, optional) The number of seconds
                     for which the context will remain valid.  If the context has
                     expired, this parameter will be set to zero.  If the
                     implementation does not support context expiration, the value
                     GSS_C_INDEFINITE will be returned.  Specify NULL if not required.

       gss_OID * mech_type
                   (gss_OID, modify, optional) The security mechanism
                     providing the context.  The returned OID will be a pointer to
                     static storage that should be treated as read-only by the
                     application; in particular the application should not attempt to
                     free it.  Specify NULL if not required.

       OM_uint32 * ctx_flags
                   (bit-mask, modify, optional) Contains various
                     independent flags, each of which indicates that the context
                     supports (or is expected to support, if ctx_open is false) a
                     specific service option.  If not needed, specify NULL.  Symbolic
                     names are provided for each flag, and the symbolic names
                     corresponding to the required flags should be logically-ANDed
                     with the ret_flags value to test whether a given option is
                     supported by the context.  See below for the flags.

       int * locally_initiated
                   (Boolean, modify) Non-zero if the invoking
                     application is the context initiator.  Specify NULL if not
                     required.

       int * open  (Boolean, modify) Non-zero if the context is fully
                     established; Zero if a context-establishment token is expected
                     from the peer application.  Specify NULL if not required.

DESCRIPTION

       Obtains  information  about  a  security context.  The caller must already have obtained a
       handle that refers to the context, although the context need not be fully established.

       The `ctx_flags` values:

       `GSS_C_DELEG_FLAG`:: - True -  Credentials  were  delegated  from  the  initiator  to  the
       acceptor.  - False - No credentials were delegated.

       `GSS_C_MUTUAL_FLAG`:: - True - The acceptor was authenticated to the initiator.  - False -
       The acceptor did not authenticate itself.

       `GSS_C_REPLAY_FLAG`:: - True - replay of protected messages will be detected.  -  False  -
       replayed messages will not be detected.

       `GSS_C_SEQUENCE_FLAG`::  -  True - out-of-sequence protected messages will be detected.  -
       False - out-of-sequence messages will not be detected.

       `GSS_C_CONF_FLAG`:: - True - Confidentiality service may be invoked  by  calling  gss_wrap
       routine.   -  False  -  No confidentiality service (via gss_wrap) available. gss_wrap will
       provide message encapsulation, data-origin authentication and integrity services only.

       `GSS_C_INTEG_FLAG`:: -  True  -  Integrity  service  may  be  invoked  by  calling  either
       gss_get_mic or gss_wrap routines.  - False - Per-message integrity service unavailable.

       `GSS_C_ANON_FLAG`::  -  True  -  The  initiator's  identity  will  not  be revealed to the
       acceptor.  The src_name parameter (if requested) contains an anonymous internal  name.   -
       False - The initiator has been authenticated normally.

       `GSS_C_PROT_READY_FLAG`::  - True - Protection services (as specified by the states of the
       GSS_C_CONF_FLAG and GSS_C_INTEG_FLAG)  are  available  for  use.   -  False  -  Protection
       services  (as  specified  by  the  states of the GSS_C_CONF_FLAG and GSS_C_INTEG_FLAG) are
       available only if the context  is  fully  established  (i.e.  if  the  open  parameter  is
       non-zero).

       `GSS_C_TRANS_FLAG`::  -  True - The resultant security context may be transferred to other
       processes via a call to gss_export_sec_context().  - False - The security context  is  not
       transferable.

RETURN VALUE

       `GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

       `GSS_S_NO_CONTEXT`: The referenced context could not be accessed.
