    Command:

    keyctl_chown

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <keyutils.h>
    
           long keyctl_chown(key_serial_t key, uid_t uid, gid_t gid);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           keyctl_chown() changes the user and group ownership details of a key.
    
           A  setting  of  -1  on  either uid or gid will cause that setting to be
           ignored.
    
           A process that does not have the SysAdmin capability may not  change  a
           key's  UID or set the key's GID to a value that does not match the pro-
           cess's GID or one of its group list.
    
           The caller must have setattr permission on a key to be able change  its
           ownership.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On  success  keyctl_chown() returns 0 .  On error, the value -1 will be
           returned and errno will have been set to an appropriate error.
