#KMIP Specification V1.3 becomes an OASIS Standard

OASIS is pleased to announce that “Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 1.3” from the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC has been approved by the membership as an OASIS Standard [1].

The call to vote was made on 14 December 2016 [2] and the ballot closed on 27 December 2016. A minimum of 43 affirmative votes was needed in order to win approval. The specification received 63 affirmative votes and 2 abstentions. The ballot has thus passed and becomes an OASIS Standard.

Note that “Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 1.3” Candidate OASIS Standard 01 was also up for voting on this ballot. The specification received 62 affirmative votes, 2 negative votes, and 1 abstention. Per section 3.4.3 (Initial Balloting for OASIS Standard approval) of the OASIS TC Process (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process#OASISstandard), because negative votes were received amounting to less than 25% of the votes case, the TC will need to take additional actions.

TC Administration will now prepare and publish the final “Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 1.3” OASIS Standard and notify members when it is available. We will also work with the TC on the next steps for “Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 1.3.”

Our congratulations to the members of the TC and to the community of implementers, developers and users who have brought the work successfully to this milestone.
