           Summary: Allow to specify a security provider (priority list) per
                    connector (e.g. to allow to use multiple USB-HSM tokens
                    - one per connector)
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Connector:Coyote
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: hauser@acm.org


With the arrival of PCKS11 Security Provider by Sun, it appears that HSM devices
are supposedly managed by means of implementations of java.security.provider.
Modern linux machines often have multiple (USB-)ports, so it is easy connect
multiple HSMs to it.
Therefore, it would be great to be able to use one tomcat connector for an https
webapp with one HSM and another HSM for e.g. an axis service on top of https in
a further connector with a different tcp-port at the same time.
