RpcBindingInqAuthInfo function

The RpcBindingInqAuthInfo function returns authentication and authorization information from a binding handle.

Syntax


RPC_STATUS RPC_ENTRY RpcBindingInqAuthInfo(
  RPC_BINDING_HANDLE Binding,
  RPC_CHAR **ServerPrincName,
  unsigned long *AuthnLevel,
  unsigned long *AuthnSvc,
  RPC_AUTH_IDENTITY_HANDLE *AuthIdentity,
  unsigned long *AuthzSvc
);

Parameters

Binding

Server binding handle from which authentication and authorization information is returned.

ServerPrincName

Returns a pointer to a pointer to the expected principal name of the server referenced in Binding. The content of the returned name and its syntax are defined by the authentication service in use.

Specify a null value to prevent RpcBindingInqAuthInfo from returning the ServerPrincName parameter. In this case, the application does not call the RpcStringFree function.

AuthnLevel

Returns a pointer set to the level of authentication used for remote procedure calls made using Binding. See Note.

Specify a null value to prevent the function from returning the AuthnLevel parameter.

The level returned in the AuthnLevel parameter may be different from the level specified when the client called the RpcBindingSetAuthInfo function. This discrepancy occurs when the RPC run-time library does not support the authentication level specified by the client and automatically upgrades to the next higher authentication level.

AuthnSvc

Returns a pointer set to the authentication service specified for remote procedure calls made using Binding. See Note.

Specify a null value to prevent RpcBindingInqAuthInfo from returning the AuthnSvc parameter.

AuthIdentity

Returns a pointer to a handle to the data structure that contains the client's authentication and authorization credentials specified for remote procedure calls made using Binding.

Specify a null value to prevent RpcBindingInqAuthInfo from returning the AuthIdentity parameter.

AuthzSvc

Returns a pointer set to the authorization service requested by the client application that made the remote procedure call on Binding See Note.

Specify a null value to prevent RpcBindingInqAuthInfo from returning the AuthzSvc parameter.

Note  For a list of the RPC-supported authentication services, see Authentication-Service Constants.

Return value

ValueMeaning
RPC_S_OK

The call succeeded.

RPC_S_INVALID_BINDING

The binding handle was invalid.

RPC_S_WRONG_KIND_OF_BINDING

This was the wrong kind of binding for the operation.

RPC_BINDING_HAS_NO_AUTH

Binding has no authentication information.

 

Note  For a list of valid error codes, see RPC Return Values.

Remarks

A client application calls the RpcBindingInqAuthInfo function to view the authentication and authorization information associated with a server binding handle. A similar function, RpcBindingInqAuthInfoEx additionally provides security quality-of-service information on the binding handle.

The RPC run-time library allocates memory for the returned ServerPrincName parameter. The application is responsible for calling the RpcStringFree function for that returned argument string.
