Function

gss_export_sec_context(_:_:_:)

Transfers a security context to another process.

Declaration

func gss_export_sec_context(_ minor_status: UnsafeMutablePointer<OM_uint32>, _ context_handle: UnsafeMutablePointer<gss_ctx_id_t>?, _ interprocess_token: gss_buffer_t?) -> OM_uint32

Parameters

minor_status

A pointer to the secondary status result that provides additional information in case of failure.

context_handle

The context to export.

interprocess_token

A buffer the function fills with a token corresponding to the context. Release the buffer storage with a call to gss_release_buffer(_:_:) when you are done with it.

Return Value

A status code set to GSS_S_COMPLETE on success. See Function Status for a description of other status outputs.

Discussion

The function deactivates the context before exporting it. Use gss_import_sec_context(_:_:_:) to restore the token to a context and reactivate it. Only one instance of a given context may be active at a time.
