keyctl: Key management function wrappers

NAME

keyctl_*() - Key management function wrappers

DESCRIPTION

The keyctl() system call is a multiplexor for a number of key management functions. These should be called via the wrappers in the libkeyutils library.

The functions can be compiled in by including the keyutils header file:

#include <keyutils.h>
and then telling the linker it should link in the library:
-lkeyutils
