Another question would be: when would one not want to use IAIK-JCE as the
crypto provider for iSaSiLk :-)

One reason would be if you are in the US and need to use the
RSA-implementation from RSA inc., because this is what they appear to
require you to do - at least until September next year.

We don't have much experience using iSaSiLk with other providers, for
obvious reasons. There should not be any problems doing so, theoretically,
and I would love to hear experiences of other users!

One thing we have found was that our implementations of crypto-algorithms
seem to be faster than those of other providers.
