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.
