Supporting SHA224WithECDSA

Hi Tomas -

I think the current provider is a PKCS11 v2.20 based provider.  SHA224withECDSA is being added in v2.30.  I remember seeing someone mention an intention to do wholesale pass on PKCS11 to update to 2.30 at some point, but I don't think that's in progress yet.

A quick look at the current JDK7 has support for SHA224withECDSA in AlgorithmId.java already...
