Hi folks,
I had a doubt on inclusion on one of the structure element in GSS, can anyone be kind to let me know its usage/importance.
In GSS-API context for in the krb5-1.4 release,
The _krb5_gss_ctx_id_rec structure defined in gssapiP_krb5.h has two new
fields called
typedef strcut _krb5_gss_ctx_id_rec
{
..
krb5_context k5_context;
..
int cred_rcache;
..
}krb5_gss_ctx_id_rec,*krb5_gss_ctx_id_t;
I fail to understand the importance of "cred_rcache" element. Is it really required ? Looking at the changelog it looks like it is used to avoid a resource leak. But what is resource leak here ? Can anyone please explain.
Thanks in advance.
