#KMIP Specification v2.0 and KMIP Profiles v2.0 OASIS Standard are published

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of its newest OASIS Standards, approved by the members on 31 October 2019:

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification Version 2.0
OASIS Standard
31 October 2019

and

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 2.0
OASIS Standard
31 October 2019

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.
