Hi Valerie and Bernd, 
Valerie is right, I tested my JTREG Tests against SoftHSM2 in March:
http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/security-dev/2018-March/016863.html
I don't think there are more PKCS#11 related issues, as SunEC is not a PKCS#11 implementation. There are only shared tests.

The JTREG known answer tests use the X9.62 key format as they are used in certificates as well. I assume, brainpool public keys would work in certificates as well. 

I actually implemented the support for brainpool curves in TLS as well, but I had no time to provide proper JTREG tests for that, and therefore no patch yet.

Regards, Tobias
