       gss_import_name - API function


       #include <gss.h>

       OM_uint32  gss_import_name(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_buffer_t
       input_name_buffer,  const   gss_OID   input_name_type,   gss_name_t   *


       OM_uint32 * minor_status
                   (Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.

       const gss_buffer_t input_name_buffer
                   (buffer, octet-string, read) Buffer containing
                     contiguous string name to convert.

       const gss_OID input_name_type
                   (Object ID, read, optional) Object ID specifying
                     type of printable name.  Applications may specify either
                     GSS_C_NO_OID   to   use   a   mechanism-specific  default
                     syntax,   or   an   OID   recognized   by   the   GSS-API
                   implementation to
                     name a specific namespace.

       gss_name_t * output_name
                   (gss_name_t, modify) Returned name in internal form.
                     Storage associated with this name must be freed by the
                     application  after use with a call to gss_release_name().


       Convert a contiguous string name to internal  form.   In  general,  the
       internal  name  returned (via the output_name parameter) will not be an
       MN; the exception to this is if the input_name_type indicates that  the
       contiguous  string  provided  via the input_name_buffer parameter is of
       type GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, in which case  the  returned  internal  name
       will be an MN for the mechanism that exported the name.


       ‘GSS_S_COMPLETE‘: Successful completion.

       ‘GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE‘: The input_name_type was unrecognized.

       ‘GSS_S_BAD_NAME‘:  The input_name parameter could not be interpreted as
       a name of the specified type.

       ‘GSS_S_BAD_MECH‘: The input name-type was GSS_C_NT_EXPORT_NAME, but the
       mechanism contained within the input-name is not supported.
