rpc_gss_mech_to_oid, rpc_gss_qop_to_num - map mechanism, QOP strings to non-string values
#include <rpc/rpcsec_gss.h> bool_t rpc_gss_mech_to_oid(charc*mech, rpc_gss_OIDc*oid);
bool_t rpc_gss_qop_to_num(char *qop, char *mech, u_int *num);
Because in-kernel RPC routines use non-string values for mechanism and Quality of Protection (QOP), these routines exist to map strings for these attributes to their non-string counterparts. (The non-string values for QOP and mechanism are also found in the /etc/gss/qop and /etc/gss/mech files, respectively.) rpc_gss_mech_to_oid() takes a string representing a mechanism, as well as a pointer to a rpc_gss_OID object identifier structure. It then gives this structure values corresponding to the indicated mechanism, so that the application can now use the OID directly with RPC routines. rpc_gss_qop_to_num() does much the same thing, taking strings for QOP and mechanism and returning a number.
Information on RPCSEC_GSS data types for parameters may be found on the rpcsec_gss(3NSL) man page.
Both functions return TRUE if they are successful, FALSE otherwise.
