Latest Developments in PKCS#11 (S30b)

With PKCS#11 V3.0 released as an OASIS standard, and v3.1 going through the final review and publication process, the OASIS PKCS#11 Co-chairs will provide an overview of what has changed and what is coming in the latest version of the standard. As our need for cryptographic capabilities continue to increase, so does the number of solutions available to us to meet those needs. With increasing solution choice often comes increased integration burdens. As one of the most prevalent crypto API sets in the world, PKCS#11 is well supported in the industry and with a solid focus from the OASIS PKCS#11 Technical committee on ensuring it’s relevance and applicability, integrations should only get easier as this standard continues to develop. In this session, the presenters will cover the new content that has been worked into the PKCS#11 v3.0 and 3.1 standards as well as working through the items that have been improved or revised based on feedback from the community. Attention will also be drawn to publication of the API Header Files on GitHub with specific advice to developers interacting with the standard.
