Rainbow accelerator certificates are not visible
Regression from NSS 3.3.1. Using a Rainbow accelerator, installed certificates are not visible. The module was added with: modutil -add "ISG 2.0 Cryptoki Interface" -nocertdb -libfile /usr/lib/libcryptoki22.so -dbdir . -mechanisms "RSA:DSA:DH" A certificate was requested and installed using the NES 6.0 admin UI. In NES 6.0 the certificate is visible under Manage Certificates and using certutil. The certificate is not visible to the NES 6.1 admin UI nor NSS 3.4 certutil.
Rob, can you tell me which machine I can go to with the rainbow card installed? thanks, bob
OK, like nCipher, Rainbow is completely chocking on any attribute request that has an unknown attribute. Unlike nCipher, Rainbow is half implementing the spec. It's setting the length field to -1 in this case: only it's setting it for *all* the attributes, not just the one it doesn't like. The resulting patch fixed the problem. It has an undesirable side effect of causing multiple fetches of unknown attributes from perfectly compliant tokens, however. This side effect should be functionally inocuous. bob
Tip builds for testing are available at /h/jordan/space2/nsstip/mozilla/dist/SunOS5.x_DBG.OBJ where x is either 6 or 8 (both have the fix in them). nss3.4 branch builds are /h/jordan/sapce2/nsstip/mozills/dist/AIX4.3_DBG.OBJ
Comment on attachment 78369 [details] [diff] [review] Handle yet another non-complient PKCS #11 token semantic "Each standards-compliant token is compliant in the same way, each non-compliant token is not compliant in its own way." This looks like a low-risk solution. Looks good to me.

Rainbow is looking at this problem in their driver. From my reading we have simply relaxed the rules regarding the length check? So if they fix in their driver the NSS patch won't have a negative impact, right?
Rob asked: > So if they fix in their driver the NSS patch won't have a > negative impact, right? That's right. This fix has been checked into the tip and the NSS_3_4_BRANCH and will be in NSS 3.4.1. Marked the bug fixed.
