Subject: FYI: [KEYPROV] I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-keyprov-dskpp-00.txt

Title: [KEYPROV] I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-keyprov-dskpp-00.txt

Following up on Jeff’s mail re: OTKDSKPP may also be of possible interest (OTK sounds like it might be similar to the 2-pass and 1-pass variants of DSKPP). 


DSKPP is essentially a new version of what was previously called CT-KIP that by default uses the Portable Symmetric Key Container (PSKC – not to be confused with PKCS J) syntax for describing, for example, provisioning data related to the keys.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
This draft is a work item of the Provisioning of Symmetric Keys Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : Dynamic Symmetric Key Provisioning Protocol (DSKPP)
        Author(s)       : A. Doherty
        Filename        : draft-ietf-keyprov-dskpp-00.txt
        Pages           : 100
        Date            : 2007-8-1

   DSKPP is a client-server protocol for initialization (and
   configuration) of symmetric keys to locally and remotely accessible
   cryptographic modules.  The protocol can be run with or without
   private-key capabilities in the cryptographic modules, and with or
   without an established public-key infrastructure.

   Three variations of the protocol support multiple usage scenarios.
   The four-pass (i.e., two round-trip) variant enables key generation
   in near real-time.  With the four-pass variant, keys are mutually
   generated by the provisioning server and cryptographic module;
   provisioned keys are not transferred over-the-wire or over-the-air.
   Two- and one-pass variants enable secure and efficient download and
   installation of symmetric keys to a cryptographic module in
   environments where near real-time communication may not be possible.

   This document builds on information contained in [RFC4758], adding
   specific enhancements in response to implementation experience and
   liaison requests.  It is intended, therefore, that this document or a
   successor version thereto will become the basis for subsequent
   progression of a symmetric key provisioning protocol specification on
   the standards track.

NOTE:   The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
