Symptoms

Very occasionally, using the SafeNet hardware security module (HSM) results in a pkcs11d core.

Impact

pkcs11d cores, and HSM-based SSL traffic fails. This occurs as a result of the SafeNet library. It is not a BIG-IP system-specific issue.

Conditions

This occurs when the SafeNet HSM is used. Because of the rare and intermittent nature of the issue, other required conditions are not known.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The SafeNet library has been updated, and pkcs11d no longer cores intermittently.
