EPAC Accessor Function (sec_cred) API


The routines in the sec_cred API are distinguished with names having the prefix sec_cred_.

In this API, the status error_status_ok has the value 0 and indicates successful completion of the function the routine was called to perform. In the few instances where successful completion is indicated by other than error_status_ok, this other status will be explicitely called out. For this version of DCE, there is one routine that returns successful completion other than error_status_ok. This routine is sec_cred_is_authenticated().
