MECH(5)                       File Formats Manual                      MECH(5)

NAME
     mech, qop -- GSS-API Mechanism and QOP files

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

DESCRIPTION
     The /etc/gss/mech file contains a list of installed GSS-API security
     mechanisms.  Each line of the file either contains a comment if the first
     character is '#' or it contains five fields with the following meanings:

     Name   The name of this GSS-API mechanism.

     Object identifier
            The OID for this mechanism.

     Library
            A shared library containing the implementation of this mechanism.

     Kernel module (optional)
            A kernel module containing the implementation of this mechanism
            (not yet supported in FreeBSD).

     Library options (optional)
            Optionsal parameters interpreted by the mechanism. Library options
            must be enclosed in brackets ([ ]) to differentiate them from the
            optional kernel module entry.

     The /etc/gss/qop file contains a list of Quality of Protection values for
     use with GSS-API.  Each line of the file either contains a comment if the
     first character is '#' or it contains three fields with the following
     meanings:

     QOP string
           The name of this Quality of Protection algorithm.

     QOP value
           The numeric value used to select this algorithm for use with GSS-
           API functions such as gss_get_mic(3).

     Mechanism name
           The GSS-API mechanism name that corresponds to this algorithm.

EXAMPLES
     This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/mech:

     kerberosv5      1.2.840.113554.1.2.2    /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so.8    -

     This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/qop:

     GSS_KRB5_CONF_C_QOP_DES         0x0100  kerberosv5
