GSSAPI Server Example Overview

The sample server-side program gss-server works in conjunction with gss-client, which is described in the previous chapter. The basic purpose of gss-server is to receive, sign, and return the wrapped message from gssapi-client.

The following sections provide a step-by-step description of how gss-server works. Because gss-server is a sample program for demonstrating GSSAPI functionality, only relevant parts of the program are discussed in detail. The complete source code for the two applications appears in the appendix and can be downloaded from the Oracle download center. See
