MECH(5)			    BSD File Formats Manual		       MECH(5)

NAME
     mech, qop — GSS-API Mechanism and QOP files

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/gss/mech /etc/gss/qop

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/gss/mech file contains a list of installed GSS-API security
     mechanisms.  Each line of the file either contains a comment if the first
     character is '#' or it contains five fields with the following meanings:

     Name	   The name of this GSS-API mechanism.

     Object identifier
		   The OID for this mechanism.

     Library	   A shared library containing the implementation of this
		   mechanism.

     Kernel module (optional)
		   A kernel module containing the implementation of this mech‐
		   anism (not yet supported in FreeBSD).

     Library options (optional)
		   Optional parameters interpreted by the mechanism. Library
		   options must be enclosed in brackets ([ ]) to differentiate
		   them from the optional kernel module entry.

     The first mechanism listed in /etc/gss/mech is the default mechanism.
     This mechanism will be used by gss_init_sec_context(3) if the user
     doesn't specify a specific mechanism.

     The /etc/gss/qop file contains a list of Quality of Protection values for
     use with GSS-API.	Each line of the file either contains a comment if the
     first character is '#' or it contains three fields with the following
     meanings:

     QOP string	   The name of this Quality of Protection algorithm.

     QOP value	   The numeric value used to select this algorithm for use
		   with GSS-API functions such as gss_get_mic(3).

     Mechanism name
		   The GSS-API mechanism name that corresponds to this algo‐
		   rithm.

     kerberosv5	     1.2.840.113554.1.2.2    /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so.8    -

     This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/qop:
