sec_cred_get_authz_session_info- Returns session-specific information that represents an authenticated client's credentials
#include <dce/sec_cred.h> void sec_cred_get_authz_session_info ( rpc_authz_cred_handle_t callers_identity, uuid_t *session_id, sec_timeval_t *session_expiration, error_status_t *status );
A credential handle of type rpc_authz_cred_handle_t. This handle is supplied as output of the rpc_binding_inq_auth_caller() call.
A pointer to a uuid_t that identifies the client's DCE authorization session.
A pointer to a sec_timeval_t that specifies the expiration time of the authenticated client's credentials.
A pointer to the completion status. On successful completion, status is assigned error_status_ok. Otherwise, it returns an error.
sec_cred_get_authz_session_info()routine retrieves session-specific information that represents the credentials of authenticated client specified by callers_identity. If the client is a member of a delegation chain, the information represents the credentials of all members of the chain.
The information can aid application servers in the construction of identity-based caches. For example, it could be used as a key into a cache of previously allocated delegation contexts and thus avoid the overhead of allocating a new login context on every remote operation. It could also be used as a key into a table of previously computed authorization decisions.
Before you execute this call, you must execute an
rpc_binding_inq_auth_caller()call to obtain an rpc_authz_cred_handle_t for the callers_identity argument.
