The /etc/gss/mech file lists the mechanisms that are available. /etc/gss/mech contains the names in both the numerical format and the alphabetic form. /etc/gss/mech presents the information in this format:
Mechanism name, in ASCII
Shared library for implementing the services that are provided by this mechanism
Optionally, the kernel module for implementing the service
A sample /etc/gss/mech might look like Example C–1.
