Thank you for the reply!

Just interested... Do you use any hardware in order to secure your keys?
If you do which types do you use? Maybe some of the hardware do support PKCS#11.

I believe  that security product without decent hardware cryptography
support miss some of its major targets. I will be glad to work with
you in order to make this happen.
