gss_get_mic(3)gss_get_mic(3)NAMEgss_get_mic() - calculate a cryptographic message integrity code (MIC)
for a message and return in a token
The routine generates a cryptographic message integrity code
(MIC) for the supplied message and places the MIC in a token for
transfer to the peer application. The qop_req parameter allows
a choice between several cryptographic algorithms, if supported
by the chosen mechanism.
context_handle Specifies the context on which the message is
qop_req Specifies the cryptographic algorithm, or quality
of protection. To accept the default quality of
protection offered by the chosen mechanism spec‐
message_buffer Specifies the message to be protected.
msg_token Buffer to receive the sealed message.
minor_status Returns a status code from the security mecha‐
The following status codes can be returned:
The routine was completed successfully.
The context has already expired.
The context is recognized but the associated
credentials have expired.
The context identified in the
context_handle parameter was not valid.
The specified QOP is not supported by the mechanism.
