PKCS#11 Java wrapper
This is a library for the Java platform which makes PKCS#11 also known as Cryptoki modules accessible from within Java. A PKCS#11 module is a software library with a defined API which allows access to cryptographic hardware. It usually comes with hardware security modules HSM, smart cards and crypto tokens e.g. USB tokens. Thus, the PKCS#11 Wrapper provides Java software access to almost any crypto hardware. For example, a Java application can use it to integrate a HSM or a smart card to create digital signatures, to decrypt data or to unwrap keys.
