MacOSX Keychain Certificate support

Reported by: David Sommerseth Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Crypto Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Patch Queue: New / awaiting ACK Keywords: OSX keychain


This patch adds support for using certificates stored in the Mac OSX Keychain to authenticate with the
OpenVPN server. This works with certificates stored on the computer as well as certificates on hardware
tokens that support Apple's tokend interface. It has been tested with an Aladdin eToken on Mac OSX Leopard
and with software only certificates on Mac OSX Leopard and Snow Leopard. Aladdin has not yet released
drivers for Snow Leopard. The patch is very similar to, and also based on, the Windows Crypto API
certificate functionality that currently exists in OpenVPN.

Awaiting review by someone with knowledge about MacOSX.
