Four PKCS #11 OASIS Standards published

We are pleased to announce the publication of four PKCS #11 specifications as OASIS Standards.

The OASIS Standards announced today are:
PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface Base Specification Version 3.0
PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface Profiles Version 3.0
PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface Current Mechanisms Specification Version 3.0
PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface Historical Mechanisms Specification Version 3.0

These PKCS #11 specifications define a platform-independent API to cryptographic tokens, such as hardware security modules and smart cards. The API itself is named "Cryptoki" (from "cryptographic token interface" and pronounced as "crypto-key").
- "Base Specification" defines data types, functions and other basic components of the PKCS #11 Cryptoki interface.
- "Profiles" is intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that conform to the PKCS #11 Cryptoki standard.
- "Current Mechanisms" defines mechanisms that are anticipated for use with the current version of PKCS #11.
- "Historical Mechanisms" defines mechanisms for PKCS #11 that are no longer in general use.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:
