KMIP Specification and KMIP Profiles Committee Specifications 01 published by the KMIP TC

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of two new Committee Specifications by the members of the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC:

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 1.4
Committee Specification 01
18 June 2017

and

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 1.4
Committee Specification 01
18 June 2017

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

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.

KMIP Profiles v1.4 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.

These are OASIS deliverables, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.

The specifications and related files are freely available via the following links:

Members of the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC [1] approved these specifications by Special Majority Vote. The specifications had been released for public review as required by the TC Process [2]. The votes to approve as a Committee Specification passed [3], and the documents are now available online in the OASIS Library as referenced above.

Our congratulations to the TC on achieving this milestone and our thanks to the reviewers who provided feedback on the specification drafts to help improve the quality of the work.
