GSS_CANONICALIZE_NAME(3)      Programmer's Manual     GSS_CANONICALIZE_NAME(3)

NAME
     gss_canonicalize_name -- Convert an internal name to an MN

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_canonicalize_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status,
	 const gss_name_t input_name, const gss_OID mech_type,
	 gss_name_t *output_name);

DESCRIPTION
     Generate a	canonical mechanism name (MN) from an arbitrary	internal name.
     The mechanism name	is the name that would be returned to a	context	accep-
     tor on successful authentication of a context where the initiator used
     the input_name in a successful call to gss_acquire_cred(),	specifying an
     OID set containing	mech_type as its only member, followed by a call to
     gss_init_sec_context(), specifying	mech_type as the authentication	mecha-
     nism.

PARAMETERS
     minor_status  Mechanism specific status code.

     input_name	   The name for	which a	canonical form is desired.

     mech_type	   The authentication mechanism	for which the canonical	form
		   of the name is desired.  The	desired	mechanism must be
		   specified explicitly;
		    no default is provided.

     output_name   The resultant canonical name.  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_MECH	 The identified	mechanism is not supported.

     GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE	 The provided internal name contains no	elements that
			 could be processed by the specified mechanism.

     GSS_S_BAD_NAME	 The provided internal name was	ill-formed.
