Subject: Two PKCS #11 OASIS Standards published

OASIS Members and other interested parties,

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of two PKCS #11 specifications as OASIS Standards, approved by the members on July 23, 2023.

The OASIS Standards announced today are:
- PKCS #11 Specification Version 3.1
- PKCS #11 Profiles Version 3.1

These PKCS #11 specifications define a platform-independent API to cryptographic tokens, such as hardware security modules and smart cards. The API itself is named "Cryptoki" (from "cryptographic token interface" and pronounced as "crypto-key").
- PKCS #11 Specification defines data types, functions and other basic components of the PKCS #11 Cryptoki interface.
- PKCS #11 Profiles is intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that conform to the PKCS #11 Cryptoki standard.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:
