Subject: RE: [pkcs11] PKCS#11 URI syntax registration

Classification: Thales e-Security INTERNAL

It might be a good thing to revisit this in conjunction with OASIS KMIP for creating a common set of identifiers for tokens, objects, libraries, keys and other items.  This may save some time and effort although we may want to open the URI up to more than just PKCS11 identifiers in order to support KMIP objects as well not defined or mappable into the current flavor.

I would like to discuss it on the next PKCS11 if possible.

Subject: [pkcs11] PKCS#11 URI syntax registration

Some of you on this list might be aware that Oracle and some other
consumers/providers of the PKCS#11 API have been working on registering
a URI syntax for referencing PKCS#11 entities.

Since URI registration is normally handled by IETF this was done via
that standards body, this was also started while the PKCS#11 working
group in its old form was basically defunct.  Now that we have an active
PKCS#11 community at OASIS I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of
this work.

The latest draft can be found here:


It has had review via the IETF process and is believed to be basically
complete and in the last stage before registration.

We already use this URI syntax in various parts of Oracle Solaris and it
is known to be used in a few other PKCS#11 implementations as well.
