FWIW, gnutls is working on PKCS#11 support. The first bits have been added and I've been working with the gnutls maintainers on some of the remaining parts. I believe libsoup will start using this in the near future. > I also do not like the idea of adding yet another dependency to some other > HTTP lib which has NSS support (like libcurl) too much, but which other > options do we have?

You might be interested in the talk that I gave at GUADEC which addresses this and outlines our current effort to make things like client certificates and key storage work far simply and reliably across GNOME. http://stef.thewalter.net/2010/07/my-talk-usable-crypto-on-gnome.html Cheers, Stef _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list email@example.com To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
