Public review for PKCS#11 v2.40

Jaroslav Imrich
Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know there is an ongoing 30-day public review for upcoming OASIS PKCS#11 specification which will unfortunately end in a few days.

Re: Public review for PKCS#11 v2.40

Andreas Jellinghaus-4
Thanks for the note! I wasn't aware of this process. I thought pkcs#11 was completely dead.

Unfortunately I can't find any reference to header files, any word if new ones will be made public?

Also I noticed the web page does not mention anywhere "RSA Security Inc. PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface (Cryptoki)" - which was a legal requirement of the non-free license RSA labs put on the PKCS#11 header files up to including version v2.30. Is that a breach of said license os is there any word that RSA has finaly changed the license agreement and removed this silly legal clause?

It would be nice of this problematic area could be resolved with some open source headers to ease migration of open source software to the new standard version, too.

Regards, Andreas

Hello Andreas,

Unfortunately I can't find any reference to header files, any word if new ones will be made public?

I guess header files will be available later. I wasn't able to find them either.
 
Also I noticed the web page does not mention anywhere "RSA Security Inc. PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface (Cryptoki)" - which was a legal requirement of the non-free license RSA labs put on the PKCS#11 header files up to including version v2.30. Is that a breach of said license os is there any word that RSA has finaly changed the license agreement and removed this silly legal clause?

According to OASIS website PKCS#11 v2.30 specification was contributed to OASIS on 2013-03-04 [0] so I believe that RSA license on header files will be replaced by some kind of OASIS license (hopefully OSS friendly this time). Current draft of v2.40 specification is already copyrighted to OASIS [1].


Best regards,
Jaroslav
