A third-party developer of a user-level cryptographic provider application completes the following process:
Acquire a certificate from Oracle Corporation. Then, sign the library. See Adding Signatures to Providers.
Ship the certificate with the package. The certificate must be placed in the /etc/crypto/certs directory.
Add the pkcs11conf class into the CLASSES string of the pkginfo file. The following line should be added:
Create an input file pkcs11.conf in the etc/crypto directory.
The input file for user-level providers is named pkcs11.conf. This file specifies the path to the provider. The pkcs11.conf uses the following syntax for the entry:
The entry is an absolute path to a file such as /opt/lib/$ISA/myProviderApp.so. This file is added to the configuration file when pkgadd is run. Note the $ISA expression in the path name. $ISA points to either a 32–bit version or a 64–bit version of the application, as needed.
Add the following line to the package's prototype file:
e pkcs11conf etc/crypto/pkcs11conf 0644 root sys
