Release Notes: This is the first alpha version for SoftHSMv2. All required features for this version have been implemented, and the authors would like to get feedback from the community.
Release Notes: Improved handling of a busy database. Adds -Wall -Werror flags and fixes the warnings. Fixes more warnings on EPEL.
Release Notes: Supports an RSASSA-PSS signature scheme. The default location of the token database is now $localstatedir/lib/softhsm/.
Release Notes: This release increases performance by adding more indexes to the database, describes the usage of SO and the user PIN in the README, and detects whether a C++ compiler is missing.
Release Notes: The library is now installed in $libdir/softhsm/. This release does not give a warning about the schema version if the token has not been initialized yet. The tools now return the correct exit code.
Release Notes: The --disable-64bit option is respected. $DESTDIR is respected for configuration files. The binaries can now show the version number. softhsm-keyconv could not handle --ttl properly. softhsm is linked statically with libsofthsm. libsofthsm.so is built without a version number. libsofthsm.so is now a loadable module.
Release Notes: Documentation on how to do backup was added. The number of concurrent sessions is limited to 256, because SQLite has a limit on the number of database connections. A sample of the configuration file is installed. Manual pages are now available for softhsm, softhsm-keyconv, and softhsm.conf. The –enable-64bit configure option now works correctly. There is a known bug in which a version of Botan available in some operating systems has a problem with the entropy. This causes SoftHSM to freeze in some operations. This can be worked around by upgrading to Botan 1.8.5 or greater.
Release Notes: This release fixed a bug where signing could not be performed when another application had a lock on the database. The database connection is now checked. Upgrading to Botan 1.8.5 or later is recommended to fix a freeze due to entropy problems that occurred during some operations
Release Notes: /usr/local, /etc, and /var are used by default. The performance of creating keys was improved. An error message is logged if the database cannot be opened. There is a known bug in which a version of Botan available in some OSes has a problem with the entropy. This causes SoftHSM to freeze in some operations. This problem can be worked around by upgrading to Botan 1.8.5 or greater.
Release Notes: A check for the Botan library was added in the config script. SoftHSM will not add a default label/ID to a key pair when the key pair is generated, as was the case in the previous versions. Database handling was improved. A new database schema is used, which is not compliant with previous versions. Comments can be added to the configuration file by using #. The default location of the configuration file is $sysconfdir/softhsm.conf. The configure options were simplified. The softhsm tool initializes the tokens by using the library. Keys are imported via PKCS#11 and the softhsm tool. Keys are exported via the softhsm tool.
