  Description     : Netscape's secure PIN storage library

Svrcore is a library for handling PIN requests from Mozilla's Network 
Security Service (NSS) library. It provides a standard way for servers
to allow PIN input from a file or from the terminal. There is also a PIN
handler that caches the PIN in memory after encrypting it with a key stored 
on a PKCS11 device, thereby allowing a server to restart without reentering
the PIN.

It is needed by the 389 Directory Server and FreeIPA projects.
