       CSSM_ModuleAttach - Attach and verify a service provider module (CDSA)

       Common Security Services Manager library (libcssm.so)

       A pointer to the CSSM_GUID structure containing the global unique iden‐
       tifier  for the CSP module.  The major and minor version number of CDSA
       that the application is compatible with.	 A structure containing point‐
       ers  to	the  memory routines.  A SubServiceID identifying a particular
       subservice within the module. Subservice IDs can be obtained  from  MDS
       or gleaned from insertion events reported through the callback function
       installed through CSSM_ModuleLoad(). Modules that provide only one ser‐
       vice  can  use  zero as their subservice ID.  A service mask describing
       the type of service the caller is requesting of	the  service  provider
       module.	 A mask representing the caller's request for session-specific
       services.  The CSSM_KEY_HIERARCHY option directing CSSM	what  embedded
       key  to	use  when verifying integrity of the named module.  A table of
       function-name and API function-pointer pairs. The caller	 provides  the
       name of the functions as input. The corresponding API function pointers
       are returned on output. The function table allows  dynamic  linking  of
       CDSA  interfaces,  including  interfaces	 to  Elective  Module Managers
       (EMMs), which are transparently loaded by  CSSM	during	CSSM_ModuleAt‐
       tach().	 The  number  of entries in the FunctionTable parameter. If no
       FunctionTable is provided, this value must  be  zero.   This  field  is
       reserved	 for  future use. It should always be set to zero A new module
       handle that  can	 be  used  to  interact	 with  the  requested  service
       provider.  The value will be set to CSSM_INVALID_HANDLE if the function

       This function attaches the service provider module  and	verifies  that
       the  version  of	 the  module expected by the application is compatible
       with the version on the system. The module  can	implement  subservices
       (described  in  your  service provider's documentation). The caller can
       specify a specific subservice provided by the module.

       If the subservice is supported as part of the CSSM framework as well as
       by  an  EMM,  ModuleAttach  attaches  the  Service Provider to the CSSM
       framework. If the subservice is supported only by an EMM,  ModuleAttach
       loads  the appropriate EMM. The service provider is given an indication
       of whether it is being attached to the CSSM framework or an EMM.

       The caller can provide a function table containing function  names  for
       the  desired  services. On output each function name is matched with an
       API function pointer. The caller can use the pointers to invoke service
       module operations through CSSM.

       A CSSM_RETURN value indicating success or specifying a particular error
       condition. The value CSSM_OK indicates success. All other values repre‐
       sent an error condition.

       Errors	are   described	  in   the   CDSA   technical  standard.   See


       Intel CDSA Application Developer's Guide (see CDSA_intro(3))
