So it looks like the enforcer believed that the keys were properly
created in the HSM. But then when it comes time to use the keys (either
"key list -v" or signing) they can not be found...

Note that the HSM is the _only_ place that the keys can be created;
there is no fall-back to softHSM or keys on disk. So what this message
means is that the enforcers database is referring to keys that do not
exist at all. (Or at least the system can not access them for some reason.)

Do other tools show if the keys exist or not?
