GSS-API Programming Guide

Programs Using GSS-API

This appendix shows the source code for two sample applications that use GSS-API to make a safe network connection. One application is a client, and the other is a server. The two programs display benchmarks as they run, so that a user can “see” GSS-API being used. Additionally, certain miscellaneous functions are provided for use by the client and server applications. For convenience's sake we have divided each application into its constituent functions.

These programs are examined in detail in Chapter 2, A Walk–Through of the Sample GSS-API Programs.
