CKMULTISLOT is an alternate PKCS#11 library working with Thales (nCipher line) HSM devices. Itís specifically designed to support million of RSA keys by using encrypted blobs stored into an external filesystem or database.
The original PKCS#11 implementation by Thales is indeed suitable for a large number of applications, however when a company needs to handle million of keys, each one protected with a different PIN, a number of problems arise which prevent the system to work properly.
Careful resources allocation and external database storage are the two main factors on which the CKMULTISLOT hinges to allow the management of a scalable number of slots/keys which arenít possible with the original PKCS#11 implementation.
