This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

openCryptoki had insecure lock file handling, which might have allowed
local users with pkcs11 privileges to look at other local users pkcs11
credentials.

Some additional small fixes in pkcsslotd were fixed :

- Set pkcsslotd pid to /var/run/pkcsslotd.pid

- Removed spurious '-' before no-header option on ps

- Sending output of pkcs11_startup to syslog via logger
