door_ucred(3C)

Name

door_ucred - return credential information associated with the client

Synopsis

cc –mt [ flag... ] file... [ library... ]
#include <door.h>

int door_ucred(ucred_t **info);

Description

The door_ucred() function returns credential information associated with the client, if any, of the current door invocation.

When successful, door_ucred() writes a pointer to a user credential to the location pointed to by info if that location was previously NULL. If that location was non-null, door_ucred() assumes that info points to a previously allocated ucred_t which is then reused. The location pointed to by info can be used multiple times before being freed. The value returned in info must be freed using ucred_free(3C).

The resulting user credential includes information about the effective user and group ID, the real user and group ID, all privilege sets and the calling PID.

The credential information associated with the client refers to the information from the immediate caller, not necessarily from the first thread in a chain of door calls.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, door_ucred() returns 0. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error, in which case the memory location pointed to by the info argument is unchanged.

Errors

The door_ucred() function will fail if:

EAGAIN

The location pointed to by info was NULL and allocating memory sufficient to hold a ucred failed.

EFAULT

The address of the info argument is invalid.

EINVAL

There is no associated door client.

ENOMEM

The location pointed to by info was NULL and allocating memory sufficient to hold a ucred failed.
