Video Presentation by Wolfgang Ley

This presentation provides an overview of the OpenSolaris
Cryptographic Framework. After a short introduction of the overall
design, it explores the available APIs in kernel and userland. This
includes standard interfaces (PKCS#11 - Public-Key Crypto Standard
#11 from RSA Labs) but also additional interfaces to simplify the
access to the cryptograhic services. In addition to the consumer APIs
we'll also cover the administration of the cryptographic framework.
This includes displaying, enabling/disabling or adding/removing
certain cryptographic providers or mechanisms.
