Key Server

The private key is available through an external process running on the client machine. Then the browser can only request decryption.
You have to install an extra Key Server on your machine, which is able to both recognize provided key files or Smart Cards (currently Windows only).
The key is never saved in the browser.


The Key Server supports reading the key from a storage location (.pem file) or from a pkcs#11 compatible hardware device.
