*p11tool* now supports writing objects by specifying a stored ID With this update, the *p11tool* GnuTLS PKCS#11 tool supports the new "--id" option to write objects by specifying a stored ID. This allows the written object to be addressable by more applications than *p11tool*.

Description SHAURYA 2016-11-28 15:25:06 UTC
Description of problem:

Please provide --id option for p11-kit

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:


Customer's statement -
Without the --id option of p11tool, we can't affect an id value to the certificate we need to write to the HSM.

With the Windows version of GNUTLS, the --id option is present and functionnal

You need to provide the --id option in p11tool, without it, the certificate doesn't have any id and then is not adressable by the software using the HSM for signing documents.

Comment 1 Daiki Ueno 2016-11-28 15:35:05 UTC
Reassigning to gnutls, since p11tool is part of it.
