I would like to request that we design and implement a system within NSS to allow 3rd party smart card vendors to contribute their PKCS#11 driver source code to NSS. At some point in the future we might decide to ship some number of these drivers in PSM so that end-users do not need to install any software; they just need to plug in the hardware.
Moving to version 3.2.
Version: 3.1 → 3.2
Set target milestone 4.0.
Target Milestone: 3.4 → 4.0
I'm not sure that this request is really appropriate for NSS. The smartcard PKCS#11 libraries would have many platform dependencies, including low-level drivers. We could not get them to work under every OS that NSS supports . It is better for the libraries to be maintained outside of the NSS source tree. Thus, I would suggest closing this as WONTFIX.
