yhsm-daemon ā€” Allow multiple users of a YubiHSM.


yhsm-daemon [options] [device] [port]


This is a daemon to allow multiple users of a YubiHSM without requiring permission to use the device. The daemon listens on a TCP port on localhost and allows multiple connections to share a YubiHSM. Access the YubiHSM via the daemon by specifying a device string following the yhsm://<host>:<port> syntax:

hsm = YHSM('yhsm://localhost:5348')

Note that the daemon and clients need to share the same version number to be compatible.
