PKCS#11 URIs are a way to identify a certain crypto object that resides in a PKCS#11 module. These URIs can be used in configuration files, or when one application needs to refer another to a cryptographic object, like a key or a certificate.
A PKCS#11 URI looks like:
Implementations and Integration
- GnuTLS: Used to lookup certificate and key objects.
- Gck library: API for parsing and building PKCS#11 URIs
- p11-kit: Used in configuration. Also has an API for parsing and building PKCS#11 URIs
