PKCSSLOTD(8)			 openCryptoki			  PKCSSLOTD(8)

NAME
       pkcsslotd - shared memory manager for opencryptoki

DESCRIPTION
       The  pkcsslotd  daemon  manages PKCS#11 objects between PKCS#11-enabled
       applications. When 2 or more processes are accessing the	 same  crypto-
       graphic token, the daemon is notified and updates each application when
       the token's objects change.

NOTES
       Only one	instance of the	pkcsslotd daemon  should  be  running  on  any
       given host. If a	prior instance of pkcsslotd did	not shut down cleanly,
       then it may leave an allocated shared memory segment on the system. The
       allocated memory	segment	can be identified by its key and can be	safely
       removed once the	daemon is stopped with the ipcrm command, such as:

       ipcrm -M	0x6202AB38

       The daemon creates the shared memory segment with  group	 ownership  by
       the  pkcs11  group. All non-root	users that should be able to use open-
       Cryptoki	need to	be members of the group. Only trusted users should  be
       assigned	 to  the group,	see the	"SECURITY NOTE"	in the opencryptoki(7)
       manual page for details.
