[Openvpn-users] [HELP TESTING] Next OpenVPN PKCS#11 support -- Windows

Hello All,

I need help in testing next version of PKCS#11 support in Windows 

This version uses PKCS#11 helper as external DLL, I don't have a 
suitable environment to test this, so I need your help.

If you are running on Windows and uses PKCS#11 I hope you can try out 
this new version.

>From a user perspective, the major difference is that you select your 
certificate based on serialized id and not by slot and object.

openvpn --show-pkcs11-ids <provider>
to get a list of available ids.

Then use:
pkcs11-id '<whatever>'
in configuration file to select the right identity, mind the single quote.

You can find a binaries at:
Just copy them over current ones. The DLL names may be different, it 
is OK.

You can find an installer at:

To make things more difficult, the whole build system for Windows was 
modified... Now all components are built using cross compiler... So I 
expect more problems than PKCS#11.

Also the installer had been modified, so I will appreciate if you can 
test if there are issue with install process too.

Thank you for your cooperation,
Alon Bar-Lev.
