Abstract

"PKCS #11 v2.20: Cryptographic Token Interface Standard" [PKCS11] specifies an API, called Cryptoki, for devices that hold cryptographic information and perform cryptographic functions. Cryptoki (pronounced "crypto-key" and short for "cryptographic token interface") follows a simple object-based approach, addressing the goals of technology independence (any kind of device may be used) and resource sharing (multiple applications may access multiple devices), presenting applications with a common, logical view of the device -- a cryptographic token.

Abstract

   This memo specifies a PKCS #11 Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)    Scheme for identifying PKCS #11 objects stored in PKCS #11 tokens and    also for identifying PKCS #11 tokens, slots, or libraries.  The URI    scheme is based on how PKCS #11 objects, tokens, slots, and libraries    are identified in "PKCS #11 v2.20: Cryptographic Token Interface    Standard".
