Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-10-05 14:52:13 EDT
As part of the smart card login efforts, we need a way to uniquely identify
tokens.  We currently look at the login token name and say that it's not a
supported configuration to have more than one token with the same name.

Ideally, NSS would provide a GetTokenUUID() function or similiar that is always
unique the token.  Maybe this function could be the concatentation (or hash?) of
the token's serial number and label.

The serial number of the token isn't suffient on it's own, because apparently, a
fair number of tokens on the market don't give unique serial numbers from token
to token.

Reassigning to Bob, who is working on NSS features.
I wonder if this should rather be tracked in bugzilla.mozilla.org component NSS
as an enhancement request.
