Invitation to comment on 3 #KMIP documents - ends May 16th

We are pleased to announce that Version 1.4 of the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles, Key Management Interoperability Protocol Usage Guide, and Key Management Interoperability Protocol Test Cases are now available for public review and comment. These documents incorporate updates to Version 1.3 including feedback from RSA 2017 interoperability testing, updates to existing test cases and new profiles.

These documents are intended to complement the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification by providing guidance on how to implement it.

- KMIP Profiles specifies conformance clauses that define the use of objects, attributes, operations, message elements and authentication methods within specific contexts of KMIP server and client interaction.

- The Usage Guide provides guidance on how to implement KMIP effectively to ensure interoperability and to address key management usage scenarios.

- KMIP Test Cases compliment the Usage Guide by describing a set of recommended test cases that illustrate how the protocol may be used when implementing KMIP in applications.

The documents and related files are available here:
