This is not allowed by the spec. C_Initialize() fork() semantic is specifically specified as unpredictable. You need to finalize before the fork().
Please read the documentation before you so quickly response. --- 6.5.1 Applications and processes In general, on most platforms, the previous paragraph means that an application consists of a single process. Consider a UNIX process P which becomes a Cryptoki application by calling C_Initialize, and then uses the fork() system call to create a child process C. Since P and C have separate address spaces (or will when one of them performs a write operation, if the operating system follows the copy-on-write paradigm), they are not part of the same application. Therefore, if C needs to use Cryptoki, it needs to perform its own C_Initialize call. Furthermore, if C needs to be logged into the token(s) that it will access via Cryptoki, it needs to log into them even if P already logged in, since P and C are completely separate applications. In this particular case (when C is the child of a process which is a Cryptoki application), the behavior of Cryptoki is undefined if C tries to use it without its own C_Initialize call. Ideally, such an attempt would return the value CKR_CRYPTOKI_NOT_INITIALIZED; however, because of the way fork() works, insisting on this return value might have a bad impact on --- Please fix your code to match the required behavior.
