Function

gss_display_mech_attr(_:_:_:_:_:)

Returns a human-readable name and description of a mechanism attribute.

Declaration

func gss_display_mech_attr(_ minor_status: UnsafeMutablePointer<OM_uint32>, _ mech_attr: gss_const_OID, _ name: gss_buffer_t?, _ short_desc: gss_buffer_t?, _ long_desc: gss_buffer_t?) -> OM_uint32

Parameters

minor_status

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

mech_attr

The mechanism attribute to examine. See Mechanisms and Authentication for a list of possible values.

name

A buffer the function fills with a human readable version of the mechanism attribute. Release this buffer with a call to gss_release_buffer(_:_:) when you are done with it.

short_desc

A buffer the function fills with a short description of the mechanism attribute. Release this buffer with a call to gss_release_buffer(_:_:) when you are done with it.

long_desc

A buffer the function fills with a longer description of the mechanism attribute. Release this buffer with a call to gss_release_buffer(_:_:) when you are done with it.
