DESCRIPTION

       These functions return credential information from an sd_bus_creds object. Credential
       objects may be created with sd_bus_creds_new_from_pid(3), in which case they describe the
       credentials of the process identified by the specified PID, with sd_bus_get_name_creds(3),
       in which case they describe the credentials of a bus peer identified by the specified bus
       name, with sd_bus_get_owner_creds(3), in which case they describe the credentials of the
       creator of a bus, or with sd_bus_message_get_creds(3), in which case they describe the
       credentials of the sender of the message.

       Not all credential fields are part of every "sd_bus_creds" object. Use
       sd_bus_creds_get_mask(3) to determine the mask of fields available.

       sd_bus_creds_get_pid() will retrieve the PID (process identifier). Similarly,
       sd_bus_creds_get_ppid() will retrieve the parent PID. Note that PID 1 has no parent
       process, in which case -ENXIO is returned.

       sd_bus_creds_get_tid() will retrieve the TID (thread identifier).

       sd_bus_creds_get_uid() will retrieve the numeric UID (user identifier). Similarly,
       sd_bus_creds_get_euid() returns the effective UID, sd_bus_creds_get_suid() the saved UID
       and sd_bus_creds_get_fsuid() the file system UID.

       sd_bus_creds_get_gid() will retrieve the numeric GID (group identifier). Similarly,
       sd_bus_creds_get_egid() returns the effective GID, sd_bus_creds_get_sgid() the saved GID
       and sd_bus_creds_get_fsgid() the file system GID.

       sd_bus_creds_get_supplementary_gids() will retrieve the supplementary GIDs list.

       sd_bus_creds_get_comm() will retrieve the comm field (truncated name of the executable, as
       stored in /proc/pid/comm).

       sd_bus_creds_get_tid_comm() will retrieve the comm field of the thread (as stored in
       /proc/pid/task/tid/comm).

       sd_bus_creds_get_exe() will retrieve the path to the program executable (as stored in the
       /proc/pid/exe link, but with the " (deleted)" suffix removed). Note that kernel threads do
       not have an executable path, in which case -ENXIO is returned.

       sd_bus_creds_get_cmdline() will retrieve an array of command line arguments (as stored in
       /proc/pid/cmdline). Note that kernel threads do not have a command line, in which case
       -ENXIO is returned.

       sd_bus_creds_get_cgroup() will retrieve the control group path. See cgroups.txt[1].

       sd_bus_creds_get_unit() will retrieve the systemd unit name (in the system instance of
       systemd) that the process is a part of. See systemd.unit(5). For processes that are not
       part of a unit, returns -ENXIO.

       sd_bus_creds_get_user_unit() will retrieve the systemd unit name (in the user instance of
       systemd) that the process is a part of. See systemd.unit(5). For processes that are not
       part of a user unit, returns -ENXIO.

       sd_bus_creds_get_slice() will retrieve the systemd slice (a unit in the system instance of
       systemd) that the process is a part of. See systemd.slice(5). Similarly,
       sd_bus_creds_get_user_slice() retrieves the systemd slice of the process, in the user
       instance of systemd.

       sd_bus_creds_get_session() will retrieve the identifier of the login session that the
       process is a part of. Please note the login session may be limited to a stub process or
       two. User processes may instead be started from their systemd user manager, e.g. GUI
       applications started using DBus activation, as well as service processes which are shared
       between multiple logins of the same user. For processes that are not part of a session,
       returns -ENXIO.

       sd_bus_creds_get_owner_uid() will retrieve the numeric UID (user identifier) of the user
       who owns the user unit or login session that the process is a part of. See systemd-
       logind.service(8). For processes that are not part of a user unit or session, returns
       -ENXIO.

       sd_bus_creds_has_effective_cap() will check whether the capability specified by capability
       was set in the effective capabilities mask. A positive return value means that it was set,
       zero means that it was not set, and a negative return value indicates an error. See
       capabilities(7) and the AmbientCapabilities= and CapabilityBoundingSet= settings in
       systemd.exec(5).

       sd_bus_creds_has_permitted_cap() is similar to sd_bus_creds_has_effective_cap(), but will
       check the permitted capabilities mask.

       sd_bus_creds_has_inheritable_cap() is similar to sd_bus_creds_has_effective_cap(), but
       will check the inheritable capabilities mask.

       sd_bus_creds_has_bounding_cap() is similar to sd_bus_creds_has_effective_cap(), but will
       check the bounding capabilities mask.

       sd_bus_creds_get_selinux_context() will retrieve the SELinux security context (label) of
       the process.

       sd_bus_creds_get_audit_session_id() will retrieve the audit session identifier of the
       process. Returns -ENXIO for processes that are not part of an audit session.

       sd_bus_creds_get_audit_login_uid() will retrieve the audit user login identifier (the
       identifier of the user who is "responsible" for the session). Returns -ENXIO for processes
       that are not part of an audit session.

       sd_bus_creds_get_tty() will retrieve the controlling TTY, without the prefixing "/dev/".
       Returns -ENXIO for processes that have no controlling TTY.

       sd_bus_creds_get_unique_name() will retrieve the D-Bus unique name. See The D-Bus
       specification[2].

       sd_bus_creds_get_well_known_names() will retrieve the set of D-Bus well-known names. See
       The D-Bus specification[2].

       sd_bus_creds_get_description() will retrieve a descriptive name of the bus connection of
       the peer. This name is useful to discern multiple bus connections by the same peer, and
       may be altered by the peer with the sd_bus_set_description(3) call.

       All functions that take a const char** parameter will store the answer there as an address
       of a NUL-terminated string. It will be valid as long as c remains valid, and should not be
       freed or modified by the caller.

       All functions that take a char*** parameter will store the answer there as an address of
       an array of strings. Each individual string is NUL-terminated, and the array is
       NULL-terminated as a whole. It will be valid as long as c remains valid, and should not be
       freed or modified by the caller.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, these calls return 0 or a positive integer. On failure, these calls return a
       negative errno-style error code.

ERRORS

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

       -ENODATA
           The given field is not available in the credentials object c.

       -ENXIO
           The given field is not specified for the described process or peer. This will be
           returned by sd_bus_creds_get_unit(), sd_bus_creds_get_slice(),
           sd_bus_creds_get_user_unit(), sd_bus_creds_get_user_slice(), and
           sd_bus_creds_get_session() if the process is not part of a systemd system unit,
           systemd user unit, systemd slice, or logind session. It will be returned by
           sd_bus_creds_get_owner_uid() if the process is not part of a systemd user unit or
           logind session. It will also be returned by sd_bus_creds_get_exe() and
           sd_bus_creds_get_cmdline() for kernel threads (since these are not started from an
           executable binary, nor have a command line), and by
           sd_bus_creds_get_audit_session_id() and sd_bus_creds_get_audit_login_uid() when the
           process is not part of an audit session, and sd_bus_creds_get_tty() if the process has
           no controlling TTY.

       -EINVAL
           Specified pointer parameter is NULL.

       -ENOMEM
           Memory allocation failed.

NOTES

       These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with
       the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
