o CERT (filename of the certificate)
o INTERNAL_CHAIN (filename of the certificate chain)
o ENGINE_USAGE (type of the crypto operations where engine should be used)
o KEY_STORE (storage type of the token’s private key - could be OPENXPKI or ENGINE)
o WRAPPER (wrapper for the OpenSSL binary)
o ENGINE_SECTION (a part of the OpenSSL configuration file for the engine)
o NFAST_HOME (nCipher software home directory, defaults to /opt/nfast)
o CHECKCMDTIMEOUT (timeout in secounds for nCipher key check tool commands)
o ONLINECHECKGRACEPERIOD \fIs0()

    get_engine

returns the used OpenSSL engine or the empty string if no engine is used.

    get_keyform

returns e or engine if the key is stored in an OpenSSL engine.

    get_wrapper
