KEYCTL(3)                Linux Key Management Calls                KEYCTL(3)

NAME         top

       keyctl_*() - key management function wrappers

DESCRIPTION         top

       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
