The increased use of encryption for securing information in the enterprise
reflects the critical importance of this technology in addressing regulatory
requirements, protecting intellectual property and controlling the exposure
of sensitive information. The widespread use of encryption, however, is
complicated by inconsistencies and duplication in the key management systems
supporting each of the encryption environments. Full-disk encryption systems
for laptops have their own key management systems, as to encryption systems
for array-based storage environments and content management systems. This
proliferation of key management systems results in higher operational and
infrastructure costs for enterprises using encryption. Even in those cases
where a single key management system can support multiple encryption
systems, there are typically different communication protocols between the
key management system and each of the encryption systems. The proliferation
of protocols, even when supported by a single enterprise key manager,
results in higher costs for developing and supporting the key manager, costs
that ultimately get passed on to the enterprises deploying encryption

This presentation will discuss the Key Management Interoperability Protocol
(KMIP), recently introduced into the OASIS standards organization,
establishes a single, comprehensive protocol for communication between
enterprise key management systems and encryption systems. By defining a
protocol that can be used in any encryption system, from the smallest
encryption devices such as automated electric meters to the most complex
storage arrays and server environments, KMIP enables enterprise key
management systems to speak a single protocol to all encryption systems
supporting the protocol. Through support of KMIP, an enterprise will be able
to consolidate key management in a single enterprise key management system,
reducing infrastructure costs while strengthening operational controls and
governance of security policy.
