Subject: KMIP 1.2 interop
Based on feedback to date, we are now targeting the next round of interop for KMIP 1.2 in preparation for statements of use. The formal interop is tentatively scheduled for July 15th through to July 26th (the usual two week period). For those vendors who have not already responded and for any non-KMIP TC members who are looking at participating and making a statement of use under the revised TC process rules, please respond either privately or on-list at your discretion so we can commence planning the interop-tech calls. Each vendor needs to indicate which areas of capability are likely to be ready for interop testing in the June/July time frame around any of the functionality areas for which tests are pending and for any of the new profiles for which tests have already been defined. The areas of new functionality for KMIP 1.2 are: A1) ECC Curves A2) Meta-Data Only A3) Alternative Name A4) PGP Key A5) Cryptographic Services A6) Attestation A7) Create and Join Split Key The profiles and test cases for KMIP 1.2 are: T0) KMIP Test Cases (document pending update with tests for A1-A4,A6-A7) P1) KMIP Profiles P1a) Baseline KMIP Client P1b) Baseline KMIP Server P1c) Complete KMIP Server P2) KMIP Additional Encodings Profile P2a) HTTPS Profile P2b) KMIP JSON Profile P2c) KMIP XML Profile P3) KMIP Symmetric Key Foundry FIPS140 Profile P4) KMIP Symmetric Key Life-Cycle Profile P5) KMIP Asymmetric Key Life-Cycle Profile P6) KMIP Opaque Managed Object Store Profile P7) KMIP Cryptographic Services Profile P7a) Baseline Cryptographic Server P7b) Baseline Cryptographic Client P7c) RNG Cryptographic Server P7d) RNG Cryptographic Client P7e) Advanced Cryptographic Server P7f) Advanced Crypto Client P8) KMIP Symmetric Key Cloud Server Profile P9) KMIP Tape Library Profile P10) KMIP Storage Array with Self-Encrypting Drives Profile Note: a number of the new profile documents are version independent and cover KMIP 1.0 and/or KMIP 1.1 and/or KMIP 1.2. As per previous interops the rules for the interop will be agreed amongst the participants and published prior to the commencement of the interop. Thanks, Tim.
