I know there is a openssl and java crypto engine for T1/T2 so it should be
possible. I am a Java guy (now) and dont know about the C interfaces.
However it looks like the Solaris Crypto Framework which can be used by
usermode is somewhat PKCS#11 based.

Easiest would be to use the Solaris openssl version with pkcs11 support
( but that might be a licensing problem?

Sorry for not having more information, however I could maybe give you some
internal sun contact if you like, Werner.
