[Opendnssec-user] SoftHSM userpin

Not currently, because the SO can only handle public objects. When to SO
logs in, the session enters R/W SO Functions.

R/W SO Functions:
The Security Officer has been authenticated to the token. The application
has read/write access only to public objects on the token, not to private
objects. The SO can set the normal user’s PIN.

What we would need are different normal users with different privileges or
a configuration parameter that you can change to change between the
different access modes.

Feature requests and patches are welcome on
