Key management by using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol
The Guardium® Key Lifecycle Manager server supports Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) communication with clients for key management operations on cryptographic material. The material includes symmetric and asymmetric keys, certificates, and templates that are used to create and control their use.
The Key Management Interoperability Protocol is part of an Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) standardization project for encryption of stored data and cryptographic key management.
You can use the IBM® Security Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager graphical user interface to manage and control cryptographic materials (objects) that are supported by the server.
