Invitation to comment on KMIP Specification v2.0 and KMIP Profiles v2.0 - ends May 25th

OASIS and the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC are pleased to announce that two KMIP specifications are now available for public review and comment.

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 2.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 01
11 April 2019

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 2.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 01
11 April 2019

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 v2.0 is intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that interoperate using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification.

KMIP Profiles v2.0 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.
