rpc_gss_getcred - get credentials of client
#include <rpc/rpcsec_gss.h> bool_t rpc_gss_getcred(struct svc_req *req, rpc_gss_rawcred_t **rcred,
rpc_gss_ucred **ucred, void **cookie);
rpc_gss_getcred() is used by a server to fetch the credentials of a client. These credentials may either be network credentials (in the form of a rpc_gss_rawcred_t structure) or UNIX credentials.
For more information on RPCSEC_GSS data types, see the rpcsec_gss(3NSL) man page.
Essentially, rpc_gss_getcred() passes a pointer to a request (svc_req) as well as pointers to two credential structures and a user-defined cookie; if rpc_gss_getcred() is successful, at least one credential structure is "filled out" with values, as is, optionally, the cookie.
rpc_gss_getcred() returns TRUE if it is successful; otherwise, use rpc_gss_get_error() to get the error associated with the failure.
