+ <title>Description</title>
+
+ <para><function>sd_bus_negotiate_fds()</function> controls whether
+ file descriptor passing shall be negotiated for the specified bus
+ connection. It takes a bus object and a boolean, which, when true,
+ enables file descriptor passing, and, when false, disables
+ it. Note that not all transports and servers support file
+ descriptor passing. In particular, networked transports generally
+ do not support file descriptor passing. To find out whether file
+ descriptor passing is available after negotiation, use
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_can_send</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+ and pass <constant>SD_BUS_TYPE_UNIX_FD</constant>. Note that file
+ descriptor passing is always enabled for both sending and
+ receiving or for neither, but never only in one direction. By
+ default, file descriptor passing is negotiated for all
+ connections.</para>
+
+ <para>Note that when bus activation is used, it is highly
+ recommended to set the <option>AcceptFileDescriptors=</option>
+ setting in the <filename>.busname</filename> unit file to the same
+ setting as negotiated by the program ultimately activated. By
+ default, file descriptor passing is enabled for both.</para>
+
+ <para><function>sd_bus_negotiate_timestamp()</function> controls whether implicit sender
+ timestamps shall be attached automatically to all incoming messages. Takes a bus object and a
+ boolean, which, when true, enables timestamping, and, when false, disables it. Use
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_message_get_monotonic_usec</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>,
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_message_get_realtime_usec</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>,
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_message_get_seqnum</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+ to query the timestamps of incoming messages. If negotiation is disabled or not supported, these
+ calls will fail with <constant>-ENODATA</constant>. Note that currently no transports support
+ timestamping of messages. By default, message timestamping is not negotiated for
+ connections.</para>
+
+ <para><function>sd_bus_negotiate_creds()</function> controls whether and which implicit sender
+ credentials shall be attached automatically to all incoming messages. Takes a bus object and a
+ boolean indicating whether to enable or disable the credential parts encoded in the bit mask
+ value argument. Note that not all transports support attaching sender credentials to messages,
+ or do not support all types of sender credential parameters, or might suppress them under
+ certain circumstances for individual messages. Specifically, dbus1 only supports
+ <constant>SD_BUS_CREDS_UNIQUE_NAME</constant>. The sender credentials are suitable for
+ authorization decisions. By default, only <constant>SD_BUS_CREDS_WELL_KNOWN_NAMES</constant> and
+ <constant>SD_BUS_CREDS_UNIQUE_NAME</constant> are enabled. In fact, these two credential fields
+ are always sent along and cannot be turned off.</para>
+
+ <para>The <function>sd_bus_negotiate_fds()</function> function may
+ be called only before the connection has been started with
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_start</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>. Both
+ <function>sd_bus_negotiate_timestamp()</function> and
+ <function>sd_bus_negotiate_creds()</function> may also be called
+ after a connection has been set up. Note that, when operating on a
+ connection that is shared between multiple components of the same
+ program (for example via
+ <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_bus_default</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>),
+ it is highly recommended to only enable additional per message
+ metadata fields, but never disable them again, in order not to
+ disable functionality needed by other components.</para>

+ <title>Return Value</title>
+
+ <para>On success, these functions return 0 or a

+ <title>Errors</title>
