GSS_IMPORT_NAME(3)	      Programmer's Manual	    GSS_IMPORT_NAME(3)

NAME
     gss_import_name — Convert a contiguous string name to internal-form

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_import_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status,
	 const gss_buffer_t input_name_buffer, const gss_OID input_name_type,
	 gss_name_t *output_name);

DESCRIPTION
     Convert a contiguous string name to internal form.	 In general, the
     internal name returned (via the output_name parameter) will not be an MN;
     the exception to this is if the input_name_type indicates that the con‐
     tiguous string provided via the input_name_buffer parameter is of type
     GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, in which case the returned internal name will be an
     MN for the mechanism that exported the name.

PARAMETERS
     minor_status  Mechanism specific status code.

     input_name_buffer
		   Buffer containing contiguous string name to convert.

     input_name_type
		   Object ID specifying type of printable name.	 Applications
		   may specify either GSS_C_NO_OID to use a mechanism-specific
		   default printable syntax, or an OID recognized by the GSS-
		   API implementation to name a specific namespace.

     output_name   Returned name in internal form.  Storage associated with
		   this name must be freed by the application after use with a
		   call to gss_release_name().

RETURN VALUES
     GSS_S_COMPLETE
		   Successful completion

     GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE
		   The input_name_type was unrecognized

     GSS_S_BAD_NAME
		   The input_name parameter could not be interpreted as a name
		   of the specified type

     GSS_S_BAD_MECH
		   The input name-type was GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, but the mech‐
		   anism contained within the input-name is not supported
