openCryptoki - A PKCS#11 implementation.
is an implementation of the PKCS#11 API standard. Itprovides an interface to the functions of underlying cryptographictokens, which may be implemented via software or hardware. The PKCS#11specification has been released by RSA Labs. More information on PKCS#11can be found on the RSA labs website: http://www.rsa.com/rsalabs.
To use openCryptoki, run the pkcsslotd daemon. The daemon will read the opencryptoki.conf file to collect information about the tokens and their slots.
Use the pkcsconf utility to further configure openCryptoki once thedaemon is running.
All non-root users that require access to PKCS#11 tokens using openCryptokimust be assigned to the pkcs11
group to be able to communicate withthe pkcsslotd
daemon. Only fully trusted users should be grantedmembership in the group. Group members can block other openCryptoki usersfrom accessing PKCS#11 tokens, and execute arbitrary code with theprivileges of other openCryptoki users.
