IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V2.0 provides an automated solution to centralize and strengthen the encryption and key management process throughout the enterprise, helping minimize the risk of data exposure and reduce operational costs.
Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager offers a simple and robust solution for key storage, key serving, and key lifecycle management for IBM self-encrypting storage devices and non-IBM devices and endpoints that conform to the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) V1.0 standard. By enabling effective encryption of sensitive data, Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager enhances data security and compliance management.
A new reference library for the OASIS KMIP standard is available to help you and your IBM Business Partners enable their applications for centralized key management using Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V2.0.
New policy enforcement controls in Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager address compliance activities. Role-based access controls can define multiple administrators with different permissions such as security officer, storage administrator, and operations. With Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager, you can define different administrators for different groups of devices and restrict what devices can get which keys. Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager also enhances disaster recovery with new options that automate keystore backup and restore, and enforce that encryption keys are backed up before providing key serving.
To support enterprise-wide encryption key management, a new set of pricing metrics is now available. These pricing metrics are simpler and more comprehensive for devices, users, and server capacity.
Previously, the capacity-based metric was based upon managed terabytes of self-encrypting storage. These new metrics include:
- Per Client Device for:
- Tape device
- Disk device
- Mobile device
- Network adapter
- Per Processor Value Unit
- Per Authorized User

|Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples|
Licensing metric definitions
Client Device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single user computing device or special purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device which runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the Program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.
Following are definitions for the Client Device types.
Tape: A storage device that writes data sequentially in the order in which it is delivered, and reads data in the order in which it is stored on the media.
Disk: A non-volatile, randomly addressable, rewritable data storage device. This definition includes rotating magnetic and optical disks and solid-state disks, or non-volatile electronic storage elements.
Network Adapter: An I/O adapter that connects a host computer bus to a Fibre Channel or SCSI or Ethernet medium.
Mobile: Laptop, tablet, smart phones and similar mobile personal productivity devices.
Switch: A network infrastructure component to which multiple ports attach.
SmartMeter: A meter or sensor used to measure energy consumption and communicate with a utility for monitoring and billing purposes.
Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.
Processor Value Unit (PVU)
PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at
and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.
Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores for the systems on which the resources managed or processed by the program reside.
Any legal entity (such as a corporation) and the subsidiaries it owns by more than 50 percent.
Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Install is an installed copy or instance of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Install of the program
Terabyte of encypting storage capacity, cor example, encrypting tape with one terabyte of encrypting capacity.
Resource Value Unit (RVU)
RVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number of units of a specific resource used or managed by the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of RVUs required for licensee's environment for the specific resources as specified in the tables below. RVU entitlements are specific to the program and the type of resource and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program or resource. The RVU tables are shown in the product example below.
Standby or backup systems
For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other license or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.
As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes.
Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.
Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.
In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files, or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.
Terabyte is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each terabyte of storage available to the program.
A Value Unit (VU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Value Unit entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, for example MSUs, users, engines, tape drives, and so on, for the given software. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of Value Units required for licensee's environment as specified in the specific program terms. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with other Value Unit entitlements of another program.
The following examples are provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.
IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager requires entitlement for each Basic Edition and all resources managed.
Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager can manage encryption keys for a wide variety of usage patterns, for example:
- For self-encrypting tape drives, the metric is per Client Device with the tape device feature number.
- For self-encrypting disk drives, the metric is per Client Device with the disk drive feature number.
- For laptops or mobile devices, the metric is per Client Device with the mobile device feature number.
- For customer-written applications or commercial applications with KMIP support, a per Authorized User metric is available.
- For databases or other middleware with built-in encryption, a Processor Value Unit (PVU) metric is available.
Products may also have program-specific licensing terms, which are described later in this document. Consult the program-specific licensing terms to determine total licensing requirements for the applicable products.
Distributed pricing scenario for Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager
Assume customer ABC uses encryption built into IBM tape devices. Customer ABC's environment consists of 24 tape drives utilized across 2 sites. Customer ABC would require entitlements for Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Basic Edition for each of the two sites and 24 tape drives.

Limited warranty applies
IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.
IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at
IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).
Program technical support
Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.
If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.
For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

|IBM Electronic Services|
IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.
The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.
The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server.

Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
