[xmlsec] RE: Question on NSS Support

I looked at xmlsec.c and crypto.c and it seems --crypto-config is passed in
on a gerneric xmlsecCryptoAppInit call and needs no specific nss support. Is
this a correct assumption ?

Subject: Question on NSS Support

Hi Valery,  (... perhaps Aleksey could shed some light here too)

Was wondering if pyxmlsec might have nss support already ?

If I have nss as my default (or only) crypto, and I call the non-crypto
specific version cryptoAppInit(crypto-config-dir) using the NSS DB as the
parameter to this call, would the NSS crypto pick it up properly. This would
be a totally transparent way I would think.

Or must one call cryptoNssAppInit(crypto-config-dir) using the
crypto-specific version of the call to get it passed on to NSS correctly ?

Have you tried this yet ?
