Description Ralf Hauser 2005-10-11 12:44:20 UTC
Since jdk1.5 has a sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11 implementing
java.security.Provider, it should be possible to no longer store private keys on
the server computer's harddisk, but on a USB token or alike (being willing to
accept that SSL may become very slow...)
Others appear to have asked for this

Ralf, I'm not sure how to document this beyond simply pointing to the (good)
URLs you provide...
Comment 2 Ralf Hauser 2006-12-03 22:37:32 UTC
some aspect of this is dealt with in bug 40677
Comment 3 Mark Thomas 2011-05-20 19:07:34 UTC
The Sun URL no longer works - it redirects to the home page for the Oracle forums.

Since bug 40677 has been fixed, I don't see much more that can be done here.
