Hi all,

This commit adds, to my understanding, a dependency on libnss as a
crypto library.
Having a crypto backend may prove useful for other needs (compute a hash
of certificates, for example), but I'm wondering about the particular
choice of libnss. Do we have reasons for using nss vs other
implementations ? (nettle, openssl, polarssl) ?
I'm not arguing against, just mentioning that it may be important for
further work.
