Hi Frank,

how about an option on what crypto engine to use. Choose between Mozilla,
Firefox and on Windows the Crypto API.

Hi ,

read on the crypto-mozilla mail-list.

However, there is a technical problem at this point, which is that the database
code used by NSS for managing cert and key files is not safe for writing if
multiple process are accessing the database at once . So, presently, each
application has to have its own security database. That's not particularly
desirable .

The fix can come only by someone contributing safe database code under the
trilicense Mozilla MPL/GPL/LGPL . Nobody has been able to do that yet . Until
that happens, NSS databases will only be shareable if all applications are
opening them open read-only. 

I think peut - hap it is better to have choice between OOo Nss Databases  and
MS-Crypto on windows.

And No choice on linux , but this choice is OOo Nss databases , not mozilla.
Later when Nss database will be safe we woill the choice.

Adding "keychain" for easier finding of the certificate store related issues.
