The requirements and design can be found here:

Most of the sub-components are ready. The current work is to fully
integrate the PKCS#11 interface. More specifically, to generate
objects and store them securely (encrypted) in the backend.

It is me and Roland van Rijswijk who has been developing SoftHSM v2.
Both of us are a little bit too busy with other projects. We are open
for assistance from others, which can we can discuss off-list.

The things that are left to do is to implement support for generating
and storing keys (objects) in the object store. Use the objects for
encryption, decryption, signing, and verification. And in your case,
implement support for ECC.
