Description

18 years ago
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.

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.
