This memo specifies a PKCS#11 Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Scheme for identifying PKCS#11 objects stored in PKCS#11 tokens, for identifying PKCS#11 libraries, or for identifying PKCS#11 tokens themselves. The URI is based on how PKCS#11 objects, libraries, and tokens are identified in the PKCS#11 Cryptographic Token Interface Standard.
