What is Key Lifecycle Management?

Key Lifecycle Management includes creating, maintaining, protecting, and deleting cryptographic keys.

Keys expire or become vulnerable over a period. Their shelf life decreases because of continuous usage and an increased number of authorized users.

A process commonly known as "key rollover" generates new keys (symmetric or asymmetric key pair) to replace ones already in use.

These new cryptographic keys are available to a limited number of users, and the access is further extended to other users depending on their roles in an organization.

Key Lifecycle Management ensures that only users with authorization can access data, allowing organizations to get complete hold of data security.
