-- Information about the Candidate OASIS Standard and the KMIP TC -- 

The Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) is a single, comprehensive protocol for communication between clients and servers to manage a wide range of encryption keys. By replacing redundant, incompatible key management protocols, KMIP provides better data security while at the same time reducing expenditures on multiple products.

KMIP Specification v1.4 is intended for developers and architects who wish to design systems and applications that interoperate using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol Specification. 

KMIP Profiles v1.4 specifies conformance clauses that define the use of objects, attributes, operations, message elements and authentication methods within specific contexts of KMIP server and client interaction.

The TC received 3 Statements of Use from Cryptsoft Pty Ltd, P6R Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise [6].
