      Description

      Failures on any pkcs11 test can occur with the message "NSS initialization failed". The exception shows up as: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

      but the details of the cause show the real story:

      Caused by: java.security.ProviderException: Could not initialize NSS
              at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:211)
              at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:103)
              ... 6 more
      Caused by: java.io.IOException: NSS initialization failed
              at sun.security.pkcs11.Secmod.initialize(Secmod.java:220)
              at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:206)

      Why is NSS failing to initialize? I don't know, but I think this is a test issue more than a product issue. This is not seen with Solaris Crypto Framework and does not appear to be from a particular version of NSS at this point. All the bugs that fail with this error will be attached to hopefully show a pattern.
