NAME

       softhsm2.conf - SoftHSM configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       softhsm2.conf

DESCRIPTION

       This is the configuration file for SoftHSM. It can be found on a default location, but can
       also be relocated by using the  environment  variable.  Any  configuration  must  be  done
       according to the file format found in this document.

FILE FORMAT

       Each  configuration  option  is a pair of name and value separated by a equality sign. The
       configuration option must be located on a single line.

              <name> = <value>

       It is also possible to add comments in the file by using the hash  sign.   Anything  after
       the hash sign will be ignored.

              # A comment

       Any empty lines or lines that does not have the correct format will be ignored.
