Extended PKCS #11 Functions: SUNW_C_KeyToObject

SUNW_C_KeyToObject() creates a secret key object. The calling program must specify the mechanism to be used and raw key data. Internally, SUNW_C_KeyToObject() determines the type of key for the specified mechanism. A generic key object is created through C_CreateObject(). SUNW_C_KeyToObject() next calls C_GetSessionInfo() and C_GetMechanismInfo() to get the slot and mechanism. C_SetAttributeValue() then sets the attribute flag for the key object according to the type of mechanism.
