OASIS requests that any OASIS Party or any other party that believes it has patent claims that would necessarily be infringed by implementations of this OASIS Committee Specification or OASIS Standard, to notify OASIS TC Administrator and provide an indication of its willingness to grant patent licenses to such patent claims in a manner consistent with the IPR Mode of the OASIS Technical Committee that produced this specification.
OASIS invites any party to contact the OASIS TC Administrator if it is aware of a claim of ownership of any patent claims that would necessarily be infringed by implementations of this specification by a patent holder that is not willing to provide a license to such patent claims in a manner consistent with the IPR Mode of the OASIS Technical Committee that produced this specification. OASIS may include such claims on its website, but disclaims any obligation to do so.
OASIS takes no position regarding the validity or scope of any intellectual property or other rights that might be claimed to pertain to the implementation or use of the technology described in this document or the extent to which any license under such rights might or might not be available; neither does it represent that it has made any effort to identify any such rights. Information on OASIS' procedures with respect to rights in any document or deliverable produced by an OASIS Technical Committee can be found on the OASIS website. Copies of claims of rights made available for publication and any assurances of licenses to be made available, or the result of an attempt made to obtain a general license or permission for the use of such proprietary rights by implementers or users of this OASIS Committee Specification or OASIS Standard, can be obtained from the OASIS TC Administrator. OASIS makes no representation that any information or list of intellectual property rights will at any time be complete, or that any claims in such list are, in fact, Essential Claims.

To minimize the risk of errors, values for PKCS #11 manifest constants in [PKCS #11-Base-Rev01] are specified only in the normative computer language definition files associated with that specification. The table of manifest constant definitions that was included in Appendix B of the [PKCS #11-Base] is not included in [PKCS #11-Base-Rev01]. Corrections to errors in Appendix B of [PKCS #11-Base] have been incorporated into the normative computer language definition files specified in [PKCS #11-Base-Rev01].
See the following normative computer language definition files for the manifest constants:
The following definitions were incorrectly specified in [PKCS #11-Base]:
The macro CK_DEFINE_FUNCTION was replaced with CK_DECLARE_FUNCTION as this is what is contained in the normative computer language files. CK_DEFINE_FUNCTION was unused and has been removed from the specification and the normative computer language files.
PKCS #11 Implementation Conformance is defined in Section 6 of [PKCS #11-Base-Rev01].
