-- Information about the Candidate OASIS Standard and the KMIP --

The OASIS KMIP TC works to define a single, comprehensive protocol for communication between encryption systems and a broad range of new and legacy enterprise applications, including email, databases, and storage devices.

The Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) is a single, comprehensive protocol for communication between clients that request any of a wide range of encryption keys and servers that store and manage those keys. By replacing redundant, incompatible key management protocols, KMIP provides better data security while at the same time reducing expenditures on multiple products.

These documents are intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that interoperate using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification.

- Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 1.2 provides the core specification.

- Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 1.2 define a set of normative constraints for employing KMIP within a particular environment or context of use. They may, optionally, require the use of specific KMIP functionality or in other respects define the processing rules to be followed by profile actors.

- KMIP Additional Message Encodings Version 1.0 describes additional (optional) message encodings as an alternative to the (mandatory) raw TTLV encoding including: HTTP, JSON, and XML.

- KMIP Storage Array with Self-Encrypting Drives Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for Storage Arrays with Self-Encrypting Drives as KMIP clients interacting with KMIP servers.

- KMIP Symmetric Key Lifecycle Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for a KMIP server performing symmetric key lifecycle operations based on requests received from a KMIP client.

- KMIP Tape Library Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for Tape Libraries as KMIP clients interacting with KMIP servers.

- KMIP Cryptographic Services Profile Version 1.0 describes the use of KMIP operations to support cryptographic services being performed by a KMIP server on behalf of a KMIP client for key management operations.

- KMIP Asymmetric Key Lifecycle Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for a KMIP server performing asymmetric key lifecycle operations based on requests received from a KMIP client.

- KMIP Symmetric Key Foundry for FIPS 140-2 Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for a KMIP server creating FIPS140-2 approved symmetric key algorithms based on requests received from a KMIP client.

- KMIP Opaque Managed Object Store Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for a KMIP server performing opaque managed object storage operations based on requests received from a KMIP client.

- KMIP Suite B Profile Version 1.0 describes a profile for KMIP clients and KMIP servers using Suite B cryptography that has been approved by NIST for use by the U.S. Government and specified in NIST standards or recommendations.

Six Statements of Use were received from Cryptsoft, IBM, P6R, Fortenix, HP and Thales. Some of the COSs are addressed by a subset of the SoUs.
