GSS_EXPORT_NAME(3)	      Programmer's Manual	    GSS_EXPORT_NAME(3)

NAME
     gss_export_name --	Convert	an MN to export	form

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_export_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_name_t input_name,
	 gss_buffer_t exported_name);

DESCRIPTION
     To	produce	a canonical contiguous string representation of	a mechanism
     name (MN),	suitable for direct comparison (e.g. with memcmp) for use in
     authorization functions (e.g. matching entries in an access-control
     list).  The input_name parameter must specify a valid MN (i.e. an inter-
     nal name generated	by gss_accept_sec_context() or by
     gss_canonicalize_name().)

PARAMETERS
     minor_status   Mechanism specific status code.

     input_name	    The	MN to be exported.

     exported_name  The	canonical contiguous string form of input_name.	 Stor-
		    age	associated with	this string must freed by the applica-
		    tion after use with	gss_release_buffer().

RETURN VALUES
     GSS_S_COMPLETE	 Successful completion

     GSS_S_NAME_NOT_MN	 The provided internal name was	not a mechanism	name.

     GSS_S_BAD_NAME	 The provided internal name was	ill-formed.

     GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE	 The internal name was of a type not supported by the
			 GSS-API implementation.
