NAME

       pkcsslotd - shared memory manager for opencryptoki

DESCRIPTION

       The  pkcsslotd daemon manages PKCS#11 objects between PKCS#11-enabled applications. When 2
       or more processes are accessing the same cryptographic token, the daemon is  notified  and
       updates each application when the token's objects change.

NOTES

       Only  one instance of the pkcsslotd daemon should be running on any given host. If a prior
       instance of pkcsslotd did not shut down cleanly, then it may  leave  an  allocated  shared
       memory  segment  on  the system. The allocated memory segment can be identified by its key
       and can be safely removed once the daemon is stopped with the ipcrm command, such as:

       ipcrm -M 0x6202AB38

       The daemon creates the shared memory segment with group ownership by the pkcs11 group. All
       non-root  users  that  should be able to use openCryptoki need to be members of the group.
       Only trusted users should be assigned to  the  group,  see  the  "SECURITY  NOTE"  in  the
       opencryptoki(7) manual page for details.
