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

       In order to prevent a denial of service against the daemon, the  shared
       memory  segment  is created with group ownership by the "pkcs11" group.
       Any application that requires access to a pkcs11 token must be run by a
       user who’s a member of the "pkcs11" group.
