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, ev!
 en 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 solutions. 

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.
