Re: the clone() method

For the NSS C crypto library, I remember crypto operation contexts are
only cloned in the SSL/TLS implementation, and only hash contexts are
cloned (for the handshake message hashes).

The clone methods are backed by the underlying PKCS #11
C_GetOperationState and C_SetOperationState methods.
