Buffer Data Structures

typealias gss_qop_t

A quality of protection setting.

typealias gss_iov_buffer_t

The structure for a vectored I/O buffer and its defined type.

typealias gss_iov_buffer_desc

The structure for a vectored I/O buffer and its defined type.

struct gss_iov_buffer_desc_struct

The structure for a vectored I/O buffer and its defined type.

typealias gss_buffer_t

A pointer to a buffer descriptor that you use to exchange octet streams with many GSS-API functions.

typealias gss_const_buffer_t

A pointer to an immutable buffer descriptor that you use to exchange octet streams with many GSS-API functions.

typealias gss_buffer_set_t

A pointer to the descriptor that you use to manage an array of buffer descriptors.

typealias gss_buffer_desc

The buffer descriptor that you use to exchange octet streams with many GSS-API functions.

struct gss_buffer_desc_struct

The structure for a buffer descriptor that you use to exchange octet streams with many GSS-API functions.

typealias gss_buffer_set_desc

The descriptor that you use to manage an array of buffer descriptors.

struct gss_buffer_set_desc_struct

The structure for a buffer set descriptor that you use to manage an array of buffer descriptors.
