EapPeerGetResult function

Obtains the result of an authentication session from the EAP method.

This function is called when a method has completed authentication, or when the lower layer receives an alternative result.


DWORD WINAPI EapPeerGetResult(
  _In_  EAP_SESSION_HANDLE        sessionHandle,
  _In_  EapPeerMethodResultReason reason,
  _Out_ EapPeerMethodResult       *ppResult,
  _Out_ EAP_ERROR                 **ppEapError


sessionHandle [in]

A pointer to an EAP_SESSION_HANDLE structure that contains the unique handle for this EAP authentication session on the EAPHost server. This handle is returned in the pSessionHandle parameter in a previous call to EapPeerBeginSession.

reason [in]

A EapPeerMethodResultReason structure that specifies the reason code for the authentication result returned in ppResult.

ppResult [out]

A pointer to a EapPeerMethodResult structure that contains the authentication results.

ppEapError [out]

A pointer to the address of an EAP_ERROR structure that contains any errors raised during the execution of this function call. After consuming the error data, this memory must be freed by passing a pointer to EapPeerFreeErrorMemory.


This call is performed by a peer-based EAPHost using a function pointer to this API. This API must be implemented on the EAP method loaded by EAPHost, and must strictly conform to the syntax and parameter types specified in the documentation.
