Function

gss_process_context_token(_:_:_:)

Processes a token from a peer asynchronously.

Declaration

func gss_process_context_token(_ minor_status: UnsafeMutablePointer<OM_uint32>, _ context_handle: gss_ctx_id_t, _ token_buffer: 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 that should handle the token.

token_buffer

The token to process.

Return Value

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

Discussion

Normally, contexts exchange tokens during the initialization process, using gss_init_sec_context(_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:) and in the initiator and gss_accept_sec_context(_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:) in the acceptor. Occasionally, a mechanism needs to send a token asynchronously, for example after a call to the gss_delete_sec_context(_:_:_:) function when you supply an output token buffer. The gss_process_context_token function provides a means to supply a token received from a peer to the context unexpectedly.
