RPC(3) BSD Programmer's Manual RPC(3)
auth_destroy, authnone_create, authunix_create, authunix_create_default - library routines for remote procedure calls
#include <rpc/rpc.h> void auth_destroy(AUTH *auth); AUTH * authnone_create(void); AUTH * authunix_create(char *host, int uid, int gid, int len, int *aup.gids); AUTH * authunix_create_default(void);
These routines establish authentication information for use by the RPC functions described in rpc(3). auth_destroy() is a macro that destroys the authentication information associated with auth. Destruction usually involves deallocation of private data structures. The use of auth is undefined after calling auth_destroy(). authnone_create() creates and returns an RPC authentication handle that passes nonusable authentication information with each remote procedure call. This is the default authentication used by RPC. authunix_create() creates and returns an RPC authentication handle that contains UNIX authentication information. The parameter host is the name of the machine on which the information was created; uid is the user's user ID; gid is the user's current group ID; len and aup_gids refer to a counted array of groups to which the user belongs. It is easy to imper- sonate a user. authunix_create_default() calls authunix_create() with the appropriate parameters.
