Sorry for being unable to make the meeting - here is what I would have
KASP - not sure - need feedback from John Dickinson here. However, we
shouldn't need it for the alpha release providing that we can fill up
the pool of keys using a shell script."
At the moment the key generator just calls a dummy uuid creator and
adds an entry to the KASP DB. I could make create actual keys by using
Roy's existing libhsm code by altering PK_GenerateObject(long keysize)
to return the uuid if the real libhsm is going to be a while.
"Key Generation: uncertain as to the state of this (John Dickinson is
It compiles, installs finds the default xml files and creates keys in
the DB, then goes to sleep for keygeninterval. All the complexity of
calculating how many keys are needed is actually done by libksm.
I have a script that checks out, builds and installs all the enforcer
components and then runs them. It is customized to my environment,
however, I will check this in as it may be useful to others. How about
using the location /trunk/testing/enforcer/
This is my todo list
4. set up some end to end tests for key generation
5. code review and fix up the function to read conf.xml in the key
generator then make a version of it for the communicator.
6. contribute to discussions on libhsm
7. check that docs and code are in sync.
8. Sort out signal handling in the communicator and key-generator.
There is a signal handling function but it sets no flags yet.
9. look at what common code is in the key generator and communicator
and try to make it common.
10. compile on OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and fix issues with build
11. run it all through valgrind
12. once likhsm exists replace the stub in the key-generator with the
For 4 I suggest that we write a set of xml files for each test and a
document that based on the kasp draft describes what should happen as
a result of each test.
