NIST is conducting a two-day Key Management Workshop on September 10-11. The subject of the workshop is the technical and administrative aspects of Cryptographic Key Management Systems (CKMSs) that currently exist and may be required for U.S. Federal use in the future. The first day will review the DRAFT NIST Special Publication 800-130 (“A Framework for Designing CKMS”) and the DRAFT NIST Special Publication 800-152 (“A Profile for U.S. Federal CKMS”) and solicit comments from the workshop participants on the DRAFT documents. The second day will focus on CKMS capabilities in future security products and services in new U.S. Federal Information Systems. Input from Workshop participants will be solicited regarding the utility and feasibility of these capabilities as well as suggestions for other technical capabilities required in future CKMSs.*NEW!* Summary of the Workshop on Cryptograhpic Key Management Systems
The event was webcast live September 10 and 11. The link to the webcast is no longer available.
Reference Documentation: Copies of NIST SP 800-130 and NIST SP 800-152 will not be available at the workshop. If you'd like to reference either document while at the workshop, please print a copy to bring along.
During the development of SP 800-130 (the Key Management Framework) and SP 800-152 (the Profile document), NIST identified a number of properties as particularly hard problems associated with secure Cryptographic Key Management Systems (CKMS). These problems include:
The second day of the workshop will focus on these and other hard problems. NIST requests the submission of abstracts for presentation about these and other problems associated with key management systems. These submissions should be no longer than two paragraphs in length and should be submitted to email@example.com by August 6th.
