rpc_clnt_auth, auth_destroy, authnone_create, authsys_create, authsys_create_default - library routines for client side remote procedure call authentication
void auth_destroy(AUTH *auth);
AUTH *authsys_create(const char *host, const uid_t uid, const gid_t gid,
const int len, const gid_t *aup_gids);
These routines are part of the RPC library that allows C language programs to make procedure calls on other machines across the network, with desired authentication.
These routines are normally called after creating the CLIENT handle. The cl_auth field of the CLIENT structure should be initialized by the AUTH structure returned by some of the following routines. The client's authentication information is passed to the server when the RPC call is made.
Only the NULL and the SYS style of authentication is discussed here. For the DES style authentication, please refer to secure_rpc(3NSL).
The NULL and SYS style of authentication are safe in multithreaded applications. For the MT-level of the DES style, see its pages.
Note: See rpc(3NSL) for the definition of the AUTH data structure.
