FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

mech, qop - GSS-API Mechanism and QOP files

 

NAME

      mech, qop - GSS-API Mechanism and QOP files
 

SYNOPSIS

      /etc/gss/mech /etc/gss/qop
 

DESCRIPTION

      The /etc/gss/mech file contains a list of installed GSS-API security
      mechanisms.  Each line of the file either contains a comment if the first
      character is ’#’ or it contains five fields with the following meanings:
 
      Name          The name of this GSS-API mechanism.
 
      Object identifier
                    The OID for this mechanism.
 
      Library       A shared library containing the implementation of this
                    mechanism.
 
      Kernel module (optional)
                    A kernel module containing the implementation of this mech‐
                    anism (not yet supported in FreeBSD).
 
      Library options (optional)
                    Optionsal parameters interpreted by the mechanism. Library
                    options must be enclosed in brackets ([ ]) to differentiate
                    them from the optional kernel module entry.
 
      The /etc/gss/qop file contains a list of Quality of Protection values for
      use with GSS-API.  Each line of the file either contains a comment if the
      first character is ’#’ or it contains three fields with the following
      meanings:
 
      QOP string    The name of this Quality of Protection algorithm.
 
      QOP value     The numeric value used to select this algorithm for use
                    with GSS-API functions such as gss_get_mic(3).
 
      Mechanism name
                    The GSS-API mechanism name that corresponds to this algo‐
                    rithm.
 

EXAMPLES

      This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/mech:
 
      kerberosv5      1.2.840.113554.1.2.2    /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so.8    -
 
      This is a typical entry from /etc/gss/qop:
 
      GSS_KRB5_CONF_C_QOP_DES         0x0100  kerberosv5

Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
