[Opendnssec-user] SoftHSMv2: key extraction

Hello list,

I'm investigating feasibility of migration from SoftHSM v1 to v2 in Fedora and 
I have noticed that v2 doesn't support key extraction.

Unfortunately, it is absolutely crucial feature and we can't migrate to v2 
until we find a way how to do key exports.

I understand that it is not desirable to enable this by default, it is 
perfectly fine to provide key export in separate binary (i.e. not built-in 
into softhsm2-util).

Could you point me to the right part of the code in SoftHSM so I can take a 
look if it is feasible to do key extraction, please?

Thank you for your time!
