First public review for #KMIP V1.4 - ends April 18th

The OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for 30-day public review:

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 1.4
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
09 March 2017

What is KMIP and why is it important?

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.

The KMIP Specification v1.4 is intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that interoperate using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification.
