svcerr_weakauth Subroutine


Indicates that the service dispatch routine cannot complete the remote procedure call due to insufficient authentication security parameters.


C Library (libc.a)


#include <rpc/rpc.h>
void svcerr_weakauth (xprt)
SVCXPRT *xprt;


The svcerr_weakauth subroutine is called by a service dispatch routine that cannot make the remote procedure call (RPC) because the supplied authentication parameters are insufficient for security reasons.

The svcerr_weakauth subroutine calls the svcerr_auth subroutine with the correct RPC service transport handle (the xprt parameter). The subroutine also sets the status of the RPC reply message to the AUTH_TOOWEAK condition as the authentication error (AUTH_ERR).


xprt Points to the RPC service transport handle.

Implementation Specifics

This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
