Subject: OASIS press release: RSA Conference to Feature OASIS KMIP Interop Demo

EMC/RSA, Emulex, HP, IBM, SafeNet, and Others Demonstrate Support for
Key Management Interoperability Protocol Standard

Members of the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP)
Technical Committee will demonstrate their implementations of the open
standard as part of the RSA Conference and Exposition in San
Francisco, 14-18 February 2011. The team will show how KMIP enables
communication between key management systems and
cryptographically-enabled applications, including email, databases,
and storage devices. Implementations from seven companies including
Cryptsoft, Emulex, HP, IBM, High Density Devices, RSA, and SafeNet
will be featured.

The demo will provide a real-world view into how KMIP simplifies the
way companies can manage cryptographic keys. Essential use cases such
as generating, locating, retrieving, registering, and deleting keys
will be incorporated. Support for a variety of cryptographic objects,
including symmetric and asymmetric keys, digital certificates, and
authentication tokens, will be featured.

The demonstration will showcase implementations of KMIP version 1.0,
which was officially approved as an OASIS Standard last October. The
Technical Committee is currently developing version 2.0 of KMIP which
will define new conformance profiles and address additional
requirements including client registration.

Support for KMIP Interop

“Today’s enterprises operate in increasingly complex, multi-vendor
environments. Emulex's OneSecure™ infrastructure data loss prevention
(DLP) solution maximizes data security, minimizes costs and is
architected to comply with the KMIP OASIS Standard, providing superior
access control capabilities,” said Shaun Walsh, vice president of
marketing, Emulex. “The OASIS demonstration highlights the
interoperability between Emulex OneCommand™ Guardian and OASIS
members' key management systems in data center and cloud computing

“Businesses and governments want interoperable technology so they can
redirect IT resources toward business innovation,” said Chris
Whitener, chief security strategist at HP. “HP is committed to
supporting the KMIP OASIS Standard and securing organizations with our
broad portfolio of security products and service offerings.”

“As experts in cryptography, RSA believes strongly that effective use
of encryption and other cryptographic capabilities requires that key
management be an enterprise activity, supporting all of the
enterprise’s cryptographic environments from a single enterprise key
management infrastructure, “ said Robert Griffin, Chief Security
Architect at RSA, the Security Division of EMC. “KMIP represents a
significant step forward in securing information infrastructure,
enabling support for interoperability between cryptographic clients
and enterprise key management systems, while also reducing
infrastructure costs and the risks in adopting cryptographic

“Most enterprises today use individual encryption technologies to
protect vital assets and to comply with regulatory requirements
instead of adopting a holistic approach to cryptography. Key
management is the foundation of encryption services and a vital
element in overall security policy and assets management,” said Rami
Shalom, vice president, product management, data encryption and
control, SafeNet. “By supporting KMIP 1.0 and KMIP Profiles 1.0, now
approved as OASIS Standards, and the 2.0 version that is in
development, SafeNet enables its customers to centrally manage
encryption efforts across the entire organization, address regulatory
requirements, and get the most value out of encryption.”

About OASIS:

OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information
Standards) is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives
the development, convergence and adoption of open standards for the
global information society. OASIS promotes industry consensus and
produces worldwide standards for security, cloud computing, Web
services, the Smart Grid, content technologies, business transactions,
emergency management, and other applications. OASIS open standards
offer the potential to lower cost, stimulate innovation, grow global
markets, and protect the right of free choice of technology. OASIS
members broadly represent the marketplace of public and private sector
technology leaders, users, and influencers. The consortium has more
than 5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and
individual members in 100 countries.
