[Tokend-Dev] Certificates from token through Tokend in built-in VPN client on Mavericks

The point is none of the applications using the Keychain APIs reject certificates stored on the token or handle them improperly except for VPN client.

The first thing I'd like to know, does anybody have positive experience with using certificates stored on token in built-in VPN client on MacOSX 10.9.
If does, what tokend is used? Has anybody tried using PKCS11.tokend?

Moreover, I wonder why PKCS11.tokend is cut out of tokend installers.

By the way, rather long ago I've reported the issue with Apple Bug Reporter (ticket 15654874), it is still open and marked as a duplicate.

Best regards,
Eugene Mironenko

On Mac OS X 10.8 the certificates on the token are accessible via Keychain Access, Mail utilities and built-in VPN client, but after updating to 10.9 I've got an issue that certificates on the token are not listed in built-in VPN client (when selecting authentication parameters) though they are visible in Keychain Access utility.

There was a security CVE addressed and implemented in the new updates as well.
