From Bill Burns (AOL)

I'd like to be able to speficy "-mechanisms friendly" when adding the CoolKey
module to Mac FireFox profiles.

Doing this allows people to view the certs on the token before entering the PIN.
 Right now, the PIN prompt appears more frequently than necessary.

per bug council on 09/22 , we believe the current is capable of viewing certs
without password. if not we can re-open this bug. resolving for now.

I still need to enter password to view the certs with firefox.


Comment 2 Bob Relyea 2008-05-06 16:57:04 UTC
pk11install has a way of marking the equivalent of 'friendly' already. The
problem is on linux (and mac), with the current coolkey, there is no way to mark
the token friendly because the slot does not exist at init time, it only exists
once the app has started. (It's not -mechanisms friendly, see
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/PKCS11_Module_Specs )

NSS needs to pick up the configuration for slots that are initialized after a
token has been loaded.

Comment 6 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2010-07-13 23:58:44 UTC
This will need to be picked up from upstream when the fix is in and we rebase. It looks like a 6.1 to me. Assigning to Bob to the devel_ack.

Comment 7 Bob Relyea 2010-07-14 18:09:47 UTC
reassigning back to elio. Obviously if it's not fixed upstream, we shouldn't try to make it into 6.0.


Comment 11 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2010-11-22 23:19:21 UTC
Bob, I recommend a devel_ack- as there is no from upstream fix yet.
