Authdial dials an authentication server over the network rooted
at net, default /net. The authentication domain, ad, specifies
which server to call. If ad is non–nil, the connection server cs
(see ndb(8)) is queried for an entry which contains authdom=ad
or dom=ad, the former having precedence, and which also
contains an auth attribute. If it finds neither, it tries p9auth.ad
in DNS as the authentication server. The string dialed is then
netroot!server!ticket where server is the value of the auth attribute.
If no entry is found, the error string is set to ``no authentication
server found'' and –1 is returned. If authdom is nil, the
string netroot!$auth!ticket is used to make the call. |
Passtokey converts password into a DES key and stores the result in key. It returns 0 if password could not be converted, and 1 otherwise.
Readnvram reads authentication information into the structure:
On Sparc, MIPS, and SGI machines this information is in non–volatile ram, accessible in the file #r/nvram. On x86s readnvram successively opens the following areas stopping with the first to succeed:
– the partition named by the $nvram environment variable (commonly
set via plan9.ini(8))
The nvcsums of the fields machkey, authid, and authdom must match their respective checksum or that field is zeroed. If flag is NVwrite or at least one checksum fails and flag is NVwriteonerr, readnvram will prompt for new values on #c/cons and then write them back to the storage area. If flag is NVwritemem, readnvram will write the values in *nv back to the storage area.
ConvT2M, convA2M, convTR2M, and convPR2M convert tickets, authenticators, ticket requests, and password change request structures into transmittable messages. ConvM2T, convM2A, convM2TR, and convM2PR are used to convert them back. Key is used for encrypting the message before transmission and decrypting after reception.
The routine _asgetresp receives either a character array or an error string. On error, it sets errstr and returns –1. If successful, it returns the number of bytes received.
The routine _asgetticket sends a ticket request message and then
uses _asgetresp to recieve an answer.
passwd(1), dial(2), cons(3), authsrv(6)|
These routines set errstr. Integer–valued functions return –1 on
