Why It Is Not Possible to Generate Security Server Authentication Key on HSM?


Why it is not possible to generate Security Server authentication key on HSM?


The authentication key is used in TLS which means that Java TLS implementation (JSSE) must be able to use it. It should be possible to use a HSM keystore with JSSE, but support for that has not been implemented or tested.
