PKCS11js

license Build Status Coverage Status npm version

NPM

We make a package called Graphene, it provides a simplistic Object Oriented interface for interacting with PKCS#11 devices, for most people this is the right level to build on. In some cases you may want to interact directly with the PKCS#11 API, if so PKCS11js is the package for you.

PKCS#11 (also known as CryptoKI or PKCS11) is the standard interface for interacting with hardware crypto devices such as Smart Cards and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).

This was developed to the PKCS#11 2.3 specification, the 2.4 headers were not availible at the time we created this, it should be easy enough to extend it for the new version at a later date.

It has been tested with :

NOTE: For testing purposes it may be easier to work with SoftHSM2 which is a software implementation of PKCS#11 based on OpenSSL or Botan.

Installation

$ npm install pkcs11js

Install SoftHSM2

var pkcs11js = require("pkcs11js");

Example #10

Initializing NSS crypto library

Use options parameter for C_Initialize function.

Type

interface InitializationOptions {

     *   may not use native operating system calls to spawn new threads; false if they may
     * - CKF_OS_LOCKING_OK. True if the library can use the native operation system threading model for locking;

const mod = new pkcs11.PKCS11();

Suitability

At this time this solution should be considered suitable for research and experimentation, further code and security review is needed before utilization in a production application.
