NAME

CSSM_AC_PassThrough — Call exported module-specific operations (CDSA)

SYNOPSIS

# include <cssm.h>
API:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMAPI CSSM_AC_PassThrough
(CSSM_AC_HANDLE ACHandle,
CSSM_TP_HANDLE TPHandle,
CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
CSSM_CC_HANDLE CCHandle,
const CSSM_DL_DB_LIST *DBList,
uint32 PassThroughId,
const void *InputParams,
void **OutputParams)

SPI:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMACI AC_PassThrough
(CSSM_AC_HANDLE ACHandle,
CSSM_TP_HANDLE TPHandle,
CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
CSSM_CC_HANDLE CCHandle,
const CSSM_DL_DB_LIST *DBList,
uint32 PassThroughId,
const void *InputParams,
void **OutputParams)

LIBRARY

Common Security Services Manager library (cdsa$incssm300_shr.exe)

PARAMETERS

ACHandle (input) 

The handle that describes the authorization computation module used to perform this function.

TPHandle (input/optional)
  

The handle that describes the trust policy module that can be used by the authorization computation service to implement this function. If no trust policy module is specified, the AC module uses an assumed TP module, if required.

CLHandle (input/optional)
  

The handle that describes the add-in certificate library module that can be used to manipulate the subject certificate and anchor certificates. If no certificate library module is specified, the AC module uses an assumed CL module, if required.

CCHandle (input/optional)
  

The handle that describes the cryptographic context containing a handle that describes the add-in Cryptographic Service Provider module that can be used to perform cryptographic operations as required to perform the requested operation. If no cryptographic context is specified, the AC module uses an assumed cryptographic context and CSP module, if required.

DBList (input/optional)
  

A list of handle pairs specifying a data storage library module and a data store managed by that module. These data stores can contain certificates, CRLs, and policy objects for use by the AC module. If no DL and DB handle pairs are specified, the AC module uses an assumed DL module and an assumed data store for this operation.

PassThroughId (input)
  

An identifier assigned by the AC module to indicate the exported function to perform.

InputParams (input)
  

A pointer to a module, implementation-specific structure containing parameters to be interpreted in a function-specific manner by the requested AC module. If the passthrough function requires access to a private key located in the CSP referenced by CSPHandle, then InputParams should contain a passphrase, or a callback or cryptographic context that can be used to obtain the passphrase.

OutputParams (output/optional)
  

A pointer to a module, implementation-specific structure containing the output data. The service provider will allocate the memory for this structure. The application must free the memory for the structure.

DESCRIPTION

This function allows applications to call authorization computation module-specific operations that have been exported. Such operations might include queries or services specific to the domain represented by the AC module.

RETURN VALUE

A CSSM_RETURN value indicating success or specifying a particular error condition. The value CSSM_OK indicates success. All other values represent an error condition.

ERRORS

Errors are described in the CDSA Technical Standard.

CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_CL_HANDLE
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_CONTEXT_HANDLE
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_DBLIST_POINTER
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_DB_LIST
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_DB_HANDLE
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_DL_HANDLE
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_PASSTHROUGH_ID
CSSMERR_AC_INVALID_TP_HANDLE
