Are there industry standards for enterprise key management?

The following are some of the widely recognized standards in the field of enterprise key management:

  • Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), an OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) standard that defines a communication protocol between key management clients and servers, enabling interoperability and simplifying the integration.
  • The NIST Special Publication 800-57 guidelines recommend cryptographic key management in federal systems.
  • FIPS 140-2 is a U.S. government standard specifying the security requirements for cryptographic modules that protect sensitive information.
  • ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard that outlines the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving a data security management system.
  • The OASIS Enterprise Key Management Framework (EKMF) Technical Committee develops standards and specifications for managing cryptographic keys in enterprise environments.
