41 The Network Security Services (<application>NSS</application>) package is
42 a set of libraries designed to support cross-platform development of
43 security-enabled client and server applications. Applications built with
44 NSS can support SSL v2 and v3, TLS, PKCS #5, PKCS #7, PKCS #11, PKCS #12,
45 S/MIME, X.509 v3 certificates, and other security standards. This is
46 useful for implementing SSL and S/MIME or other Internet security
47 standards into an application.

140 The testsuite is designed for testing changes to nss or nspr and is
141 not particularly useful for checking a released version (e.g. it needs
142 to be run on a non-optimized build with both nss and nspr directories
143 existing alongside each other). For further details, see the User Notes.

169 <parameter>BUILD_OPT=1</parameter>: This option is passed to
