       gss_process_context_token - API function


       #include <gss.h>

       OM_uint32  gss_process_context_token(OM_uint32  *  minor_status,  const
       gss_ctx_id_t context_handle, const gss_buffer_t token_buffer);


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

       const gss_ctx_id_t context_handle
                   (gss_ctx_id_t, read) Context handle of context on
                     which token is to be processed

       const gss_buffer_t token_buffer
                   (buffer, opaque, read) Token to process.


       Provides a way to pass an asynchronous token to the  security  service.
       Most  context-level  tokens  are emitted and processed synchronously by
       gss_init_sec_context and gss_accept_sec_context, and the application is
       informed   as   to   whether   further   tokens  are  expected  by  the
       GSS_C_CONTINUE_NEEDED major status bit.  Occasionally, a mechanism  may
       need  to  emit a context-level token at a point when the peer entity is
       not expecting a token.  For example,  the  initiator’s  final  call  to
       gss_init_sec_context   may   emit  a  token  and  return  a  status  of
       GSS_S_COMPLETE, but the acceptor’s call to  gss_accept_sec_context  may
       fail.   The acceptor’s mechanism may wish to send a token containing an
       error indication to the initiator, but the initiator is not expecting a
       token  at  this point, believing that the context is fully established.
       Gss_process_context_token provides a way to pass such a  token  to  the
       mechanism at any time.


       ‘GSS_S_COMPLETE‘: Successful completion.

       ‘GSS_S_DEFECTIVE_TOKEN‘: Indicates that consistency checks performed on
       the token failed.

       ‘GSS_S_NO_CONTEXT‘:  The  context_handle  did  not  refer  to  a  valid
