OM_uint32 gss_create_empty_oid_set(
OM_uint32 * minor_status,
gss_OID_set * oid_set );


minor_status (output) 

An implementation-specific status code.

oid_set (output) 

The empty object identifier set. The routine will allocate the gss_OID_set_desc object, which the application must free after use with a call to gss_release_oid_set.


This routine creates an object identifier set containing no object identifiers, to which members may be subsequently added using the gss_add_oid_set_member routine. These routines are intended to be used to construct sets of mechanism object identifiers, for input to gss_acquire_cred.

Return Values

This routine returns the following GSS status code:


Successful completion.
