This repository contains most of the components used to interact with the YubiHSM 2 at both a user-facing and programmatic level.
The available components are:
libyubihsm — C library to expose low- and high-level functions to interact with a YubiHSM
yubihsm-shell — thin wrapper around
libyubihsm providing both
an interactive and command-line interface to a YubiHSM
yubihsm-pkcs11 — PKCS#11 module using
yubihsm-wrap — command-line tool to create encrypted objects (wraps) that can be imported in the YubiHSM
libykhsmauth — C library for using the YubiKey HSM Auth application
yubihsm-auth — command-line tool to use the YubiKey HSM Auth application
gcov and lcov (optional)
llvm/clang and friends
Documentation for this project and the YubiHSM2 in general can be found on Yubico’s developers website.
This repository uses pre-commit.
mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make
ninja builds are available as well:
mkdir build && cd build cmake -GNinja .. ninja
The binaries will be located in
build directory. To install them on the system, run
make install. Note that this
step may require admin privileges on some systems (tex.
sudo on Linux)
|Building from source on Windows should be made with the source from the source release package and not
directly from the cloned repository. This is due to the
Manpages are built by default using
help2man. It is possible to skip this step with:
mkdir build && cd build cmake -DWITHOUT_MANPAGES=1 .. make
It is possible to build the libraries and binaries with static linking, this can be enabled with:
mkdir build && cd build cmake -DENABLE_STATIC=1 .. make
There is a
cppcheck target that runs the source through
PKCS#11 tests can be run using pkcs11test.
The tool must be already built, and the path to the resulting binary
must be in your
PKCS11TEST_PATH must be set.
The programs found in the
/examples directory are also used as tests.
The tests can be run via
Or using ctest directly
By default the tests expect a local connector running at
A different connector for the tests can be specified by setting the
DEFAULT_CONNECTOR_URL environment variable.
For example, to run tests using direct USB (i.e., without a connector) use
If you are building
ninja, the following is available:
The test output can be found in
Direct command-line output can be obtained with
Code coverage is provided courtesy of lcov and CMake-codecov. This currently only works with
make and not with
Enable coverage with
cmake -DENABLE_COVERAGE=1 ..
You can then build the project normally and run some executables (for example running the tests with
At this point coverage evaluation can be generated with gcov/lcov related targets. For example
will generate a single HTML report in
