Barbican provides a secure storage for keys and other secrets and additionally has features to provide certificates to OpenStack applications. The barbican-softhsm is for testing purposes only, and demonstrates the barbican-hsm interface for interfacing real HSM providers with Barbican.


This charm provides the SoftHSM2 HSM plugin to Barbican. Note that this plugin DOES NOT WORK at present due to bug#1611393. It does, however, demonstrate how an HSM plugin will work with Barbican.
