The getauthattr() function enumerates auth_attr entries. The getauthnam() function searches for an auth_attr entry with a given authorization name name. Successive calls to these functions return either successive auth_attr entries or NULL.
The internal representation of an auth_attr entry is an authattr_t structure defined in <auth_attr.h> with the following members:
char *name; /* name of the authorization */ char *res1; /* reserved for future use */ char *res2; /* reserved for future use */ char *short_desc; /* short description */ char *long_desc; /* long description */ kva_t *attr; /* array of key-value pair attributes */
The setauthattr() function "rewinds" to the beginning of the enumeration of auth_attr entries. Calls to getauthnam() can leave the enumeration in an indeterminate state. Therefore, setauthattr() should be called before the first call to getauthattr().
The endauthattr() function may be called to indicate that auth_attr processing is complete; the system may then close any open auth_attr file, deallocate storage, and so forth.
The chkauthattr() function verifies whether or not a user has a given authorization. It first reads the AUTHS_GRANTED key in the /etc/security/policy.conf file and returns 1 if it finds a match for the given authorization. If chkauthattr() does not find a match and the username is the name of the "console user", defined as the owner of /dev/console, it first reads the CONSOLE_USER key in /etc/security/policy.conf and returns 1 if the given authorization is in any of the profiles specified in the CONSOLE_USER keyword, then reads the PROFS_GRANTED key in /etc/security/policy.conf and returns 1 if the given authorization is in any profiles specified with the PROFS_GRANTED keyword. If a match is not found from the default authorizations and default profiles, chkauthattr() reads the user_attr(5) database. If it does not find a match in user_attr, it reads the prof_attr(5) database, using the list of profiles assigned to the user, and checks if any of the profiles assigned to the user has the given authorization. The chkauthattr() function returns 0 if it does not find a match in any of the three sources or if the user does not exist.
A user is considered to have been assigned an authorization if either of the following are true:
The examples in the following table illustrate the conditions under which a user is assigned an authorization.
|/etc/security/policy.conf or||Is user|
|Authorization name||user_attr or prof_attr entry||authorized?|
The free_authattr() function releases memory allocated by the getauthnam() and getauthattr() functions.
The getauthnam() function returns a pointer to an authattr_t if it successfully locates the requested entry; otherwise it returns NULL.
The chkauthattr() function returns 1 if the user is authorized and 0 if the user does not exist or is not authorized.
Individual attributes in the attr structure can be referred to by calling the kva_match(3SECDB) function.
