MECH(5)                   FreeBSD 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 kernel module containing the
                            implementation of this mechanism (not yet
                            supported in FreeBSD).

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

     The first mechanism listed in /etc/gss/mech is the default mechanism.
     This mechanism will be used by gss_init_sec_context(3) if the user
     doesn't specify a specific mechanism.

     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
