gss_encapsulate_token(3) API function


#include <gss.h>

extern OM_uint32 gss_encapsulate_token(gss_const_buffer_t input_token, gss_const_OID token_oid, gss_buffer_t output_token);


gss_const_buffer_t input_token
(buffer, opaque, read) Buffer with GSS-API context token data.
gss_const_OID token_oid
(Object ID, read) Object identifier of token.
gss_buffer_t output_token
(buffer, opaque, modify) Encapsulated token data;
  caller must release with gss_release_buffer().


Add the mechanism-independent token header to GSS-API context token data. This is used for the initial token of a GSS-API context establishment sequence. It incorporates an identifier of the mechanism type to be used on that context, and enables tokens to be interpreted unambiguously at GSS-API peers. See further section 3.1 of RFC 2743. This function is standardized in RFC 6339.


`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Indicates successful completion, and that output parameters holds correct information.

`GSS_S_FAILURE`: Indicates that encapsulation failed for reasons unspecified at the GSS-API level.
