Function

gss_import_sec_context(_:_:_:)

Imports a security context from another process.

Declaration

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

Parameters

minor_status

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

interprocess_token

The token created by a call to gss_export_sec_context(_:_:_:).

context_handle

A pointer the function uses to return the imported context. Release the context with the gss_delete_sec_context(_:_:_:) function 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

You can import an interprocess token only once. After you have imported it, release the token’s buffer using a call to gss_release_buffer(_:_:).
