NAME

       keyctl_restrict_keyring - restrict keys that may be linked to a keyring

SYNOPSIS

       #include <keyutils.h>

       long keyctl_restrict_keyring(key_serial_t keyring,
       const char *type, const char *restriction);

DESCRIPTION

       keyctl_restrict_keyring() limits the linkage of keys to the given keyring using a provided
       key type and restriction scheme. The available options vary depending on the key type, and
       typically  contain  a restriction name possibly followed by key ids or other data relevant
       to the restriction. If the type and restriction are both NULL, the keyring will reject all
       links.

RETURN VALUE

       On  success  keyctl_restrict_keyring() returns 0.  On error, the value -1 will be returned
       and errno will have been set to an appropriate error.

ERRORS

       EDEADLK
              A restriction cycle was avoided. Two keyrings cannot restrict each other.

       EEXIST The keyring is already restricted.

       EINVAL The restriction string is invalid or too large.

       ENOKEY The key type in the restriction is invalid or not available.

       ENOTDIR
              The provided key id references an item that is not a keyring.

       ENOENT The key type exists but does not support restrictions.

LINKING

       This is a library function that can be found in  libkeyutils.   When  linking,  -lkeyutils
       should be specified to the linker.
