The naming extensions to the Generic Security Services Application Programming interface provide a mechanism for applications to discover authorization and personalization information associated with GSS-API names. The Extensible Authentication Protocol GSS-API mechanism allows an Authentication/Authorization/Accounting peer to provide authorization attributes along side an authentication response. It also provides mechanisms to process Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) messages provided in the AAA response. This document describes the necessary information to use the naming extensions API to access that information.
