User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316 We are in the development of a PKCS#11 library module for Siemens CardOS(R) smart cards. The following tests with Mozilla 1.7 on Mac OS X worked without any problem: - Load PKCS#11 module. - Log on to smart card. - Import PKCS#12 file onto smart card. - S/Mime Decryption/Encryption. - S/Mime Signature/Verification. Unfortunately we weren't that lucky with SSL/TLS Client Authentication. Pointing the browser to a location that requires SSL/TLS client authentication crashes Mozilla with the first call to the PKCS#11 library (either a C_Login() or a C_FindObjectsInit() depending on whether I logged onto the token before). The crash occurs somewhere within our library. So I don't want to blame you for our bugs. However I've got really no idea what the problem could be. All works fine (and really stable) in the scenarious listed above. I also tried Mozilla version 1.6 - same results. A test application that sends the same calls to the PKCS#11 library than Mozilla runs OK. Is it possible that the Mozilla crypto engine messes something up with either stack or memory during SSL/TLS? Everything works OK on Linux (SuSE 9.0, PCSCLite 1.2) as well as on Windows boxes. It would be great if I could get any hints from you. Don't hesitate to contact me in case any information is missing. Thanks a lot, Markus Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Mozilla 2. Load third party PKCS#11 library module 3. Point to a location that requires client authentication Actual Results: Mozilla crashes
Markus, even if the crash is your lib's fault, it still might be useful to attach the stack trace generated by the crash to this bug.

Markus, you might also try posting a message referencing this bug to <news://news.mozilla.org:119/netscape.public.mozilla.crypto>.
After reconfiguring and relinking the library in a different automake/autoconf environment (created on another Linux box) the problem is no longer reproducable. I suspect that there's been some misconfiguration in our build environment.
