OM_uint32 * minor_status,
gss_OID_set * mech_set );


minor_status (output) 

An implementation-specific status code.

mech_set (output) 

A set of implementation-supported mechanisms. The returned gss_OID_set value will be a dynamically allocated OID set that should be released by the caller after use with a call to gss_release_oid_set.


This routine allows an application to determine which underlying security mechanisms are available.
