NAME
     rpc_gss_seccreate — create a security context using the RPCSEC_GSS proto‐
     col

LIBRARY
     library “librpcsec_gss”

SYNOPSIS
     #include <rpc/rpcsec_gss.h>

     AUTH *
     rpc_gss_seccreate(CLIENT *clnt, const char *principal,
	 const char *mechanism, rpc_gss_service_t service, const char *qop,
	 rpc_gss_options_req_t *options_req,
	 rpc_gss_options_ret_t *options_ret);

DESCRIPTION
     This function is used to establish a security context between an applica‐
     tion and a remote peer using the RPSEC_GSS protocol.

PARAMETERS
     clnt	   An RPC handle which is connected to the remote peer

     principal	   The name of the service principal on the remote peer.  For
		   instance, a principal such as "nfs@server.example.com"
		   might be used by an application which needs to contact an
		   NFS server

     mechanism	   The desired mechanism for this security context.  The value
		   of mechanism should be the name of one of the security
		   mechanisms listed in /etc/gss/mech.

     service	   Type of service requested.

		   rpc_gss_svc_default
				 The default - typically the same as
				 rpc_gss_svc_none.

		   rpc_gss_svc_none
				 RPC headers only are integrity protected by a
				 checksum.

		   rpc_gss_svc_integrity
				 RPC headers and data are integrity protected
				 by a checksum.

		   rpc_gss_svc_privacy
				 RPC headers are integrity protected by a
				 checksum and data is encrypted.

     qop	   Desired   quality of protection or NULL for the default.
		   Available values are lised in /etc/gss/qop

     options_req   Extra security context options to be passed to the underly‐
		   ing GSS-API mechanism.  Pass NULL to supply default values.

     options_ret   Various values returned by the underlying GSS-API mecha‐
		   nism.  Pass NULL if these values are not required.

RETURN VALUES
     If the security context was created successfully, a pointer to an AUTH
     structure that represents the context is returned.	 To use this security
     context for subsequent RPC calls, set clnt->cl_auth to this value.
