SecPkgContext_NamesA structure (sspi.h)

The SecPkgContext_Names structure indicates the name of the user associated with a security context. The QueryContextAttributes (General) function uses this structure.


typedef struct _SecPkgContext_NamesA {
  SEC_CHAR *sUserName;
} SecPkgContext_NamesA, *PSecPkgContext_NamesA;



Pointer to a null-terminated string containing the name of the user represented by the context. If the security package has set the SECPKG_FLAG_ACCEPT_WIN32_NAME flag, this name can be used in other Windows calls.



The sspi.h header defines SecPkgContext_Names as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
