Public reviews for #KMIP Profiles V1.3 and Test Cases V1.3 - end June 15th

The OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and a Committee Note Draft (CND) and submitted both for 30-day public reviews:

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Profiles Version 1.3
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
07 April 2016

and

Key Management Interoperability Protocol Test Cases Version 1.3
Committee Note Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
07 April 2016

Overview:

KMIP Profiles V1.3 is intended for developers and architects who wish to
design systems and applications that conform to the Key Management
Interoperability Protocol specification.

KMIP Test Cases V1.3 describes test cases that demonstrate the Key Management Interoperability Protocol when used in implementations.

About the TC:

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.

Public Review Period:

The public review starts 17 May 2016 at 00:00 UTC and ends 15 June 2016 at 23:59 UTC.
