Description Robert Relyea 2009-03-20 10:45:31 PDT
NSS supports some PKCS #11 derive functions which require the PKCS #11 key handle to be passed in the parameters block of the derive function. Unfortunately there is currently not supported way of getting the PKCS #11 handle from a SymKey.

We need an accessor function to return that handle.

I have one question:
Is this really needed??
Is the PK11SymKey structure opaque?  
If not then ...
Comment 3 Robert Relyea 2009-03-20 11:57:18 PDT
Yes, it's opaque, it's one of the few major ones we got right.
