I don't know enough about what "Microsoft used to do with CSPs".  I've
posted links to the relevant chapters of the Solaris Security for
Developers Guide before.  Short answer: yes, you should be able to use
third-party PKCS#11 modules through Solaris' libpkcs11, though you have
to have them signed, and you can get your own code signing certificates
issued by Sun as described in that Guide.
