pkcs11 — Bindings to the PKCS#11 cryptographic API
PKCS#11 is an API used by smart cards and Hardware Security Modules to perform cryptographic operations such as signature or encryption.
This library is made of several packages:
pkcs11: type definitions corresponding to the PKCS#11 API
pkcs11-cli: a library exposing Cmdliner arguments used to initiate a PKCS#11 session
pkcs11-driver: bindings to emit calls to a PKCS#11 DLL
pkcs11-driver.fake: a fake PKCS#11 DLL that returned hardcoded values, used for testing
pkcs11-rev: reverse bindings to write OCaml PKCS#11 implementations
The entry point of this library is
P11.load_driver. Examples are available in
