Different pki store backend

Post by mpavlic »

Hello,

I have come across CMake paramater PKI_STORE_BACKEND during generation of project. It has default value "file" but it can be changed to "memory".
With the "memory" option CMake fails to generate a project. By the error it seems that the memory implementation is missing.
It is specified in the changelog that the only supported option for pki store is only "file".

So I have a question if you plan to implement it and when possibly it is planned for?

For the reference i was trying to generate HP SDK v1.21.

Hello,

this memory backend was just implemented for internal unit testing and is not supported.
There is no plan to change this, as it makes no sense to use it, because all certificates, trust lists, revocation lists,
would be lost on every power cycle. This is pretty useless.
For PKI you need some sort of persistent storage.
