GSSAPI::OID

NAME

GSSAPI::OID − methods for handling GSSAPI OIDs and some constant OIDs

SYNOPSIS

use GSSAPI;
#$oid = GSSAPI::OID−>new; # rarely needed or wanted
$status = GSSAPI::OID−>from_str($oid, "{ 1 2 840 113554 1 2 1 1 }");
#
# only supported on MIT Kerberos
#
$status = $oid−>to_str($str);
#
# only supported on MIT Kerberos
#
$status = $oid−>inquire_names($oidset);
# Constant OIDs provided:
$oid = gss_nt_user_name;
$oid = gss_nt_machine_uid_name;
$oid = gss_nt_string_uid_name;
$oid = gss_nt_service_name;
$oid = gss_nt_exported_name;
$oid = gss_nt_service_name_v2;
$oid = gss_nt_krb5_name;
$oid = gss_nt_krb5_principal;
$oid = gss_mech_krb5;
$oid = gss_mech_krb5_old;
$oid = gss_mech_krb5_v2;
$oid = gss_mech_spnego;
# if your GSSAPI implementation supports
# SPNEGO (Heimdal 0.7 for example
# you can use mechtype OID::gss_mech_spnego.
#
# use GSSAPI::indicate_mechs( $oidset );
# to get the of mechtypes your implementation supports
$oid = gss_nt_hostbased_service; # GSS_C_NT_HOSTBASED_SERVICE

DESCRIPTION

"GSSAPI::OID" objects are used as unique indentifiers/constants for ’mechanisisms’ -- the particular protocol and version being used -- and for the encodings used to represent names. In many cases you can request the default mechanism or encoding for the implmentation by using GSS_C_NO_OID. Check the description of the routine in rfc2743 if you’re not sure.
