NAME
     mech, qop - mechanism and QOP files

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/gss/mech
     /etc/gss/qop

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/gss/mech  and  /etc/gss/qop  files  contain  tables
     showing  installed  security  mechanisms  and the Quality of
     Protection (QOP) associated  with  them,  respectively.   As
     security mechanisms are installed on the system, entries are
     added to these two files.  Contents of these  files  may  be
     accessed  either  manually  (for  example,  with  cat(1)  or
     more(1))     or      programmatically      (with      either
     rpc_gss_get_mechanisms(3NSL)                              or
     rpc_gss_get_mech_info(3NSL)).

     The /etc/gss/mech file contains four fields:

     mechanism name
           ASCII string representing the mechanism.

     object identifier
           RPC OID for this mechanism.

     shared library
           Shared library which implements the services  provided
           by this mechanism.

     kernel module
           Kernel module which implements the  services  provided
           by this mechanism.

     The /etc/gss/qop file contains three fields:

     QOP string
           Name, in ASCII, of this Quality of Protection.

     QOP value
           Numeric value by which RPC identifies this QOP.

     mechanism name
           ASCII string representing  the  mechanism  with  which
           this QOP is associated.
