process a given name.
OM_uint32 * minor_status,
const gss_name_t input_name,
gss_OID_set * mech_types );
Kerberos 5 error code. Name to be queried.
The application must obtain the name beforehand using a function
such as gss_import_name(). Object identifier (OID) set of secu‐
rity mechanisms that may support the specified name.
The returned OID set must be freed by the application after use
with a call to gss_release_oid_set().
The gss_inquire_mechs_for_name() function identifies the mechanisms
that can process the specified name. Since Kerberos 5 is the only secu‐
rity mechanism supported by the HP Application Security Toolkit, this
function always returns it as the only security mechanism in the OID
This function is intended for use with applications that are designed
for multiple mechanisms.
