RSA/EMC have announced that they will move PKCS #11 into OASIS as a new technical committee. Cryptsoft supports this move and will be participating in the formation of the new technical committee. PKCS#11 information remains available at http://www.cryptsoft.com/pkcs11doc/
The 60-day public review starts 11 October 2012 and ends 10 December 2012. This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work. The documents are available at https://www.oasis-open.org/news/announcements/60-day-public-review-for-kmip-specification-version-1-1-cos01 This is the final step before KMIP 1.1 is submitted to the OASIS member companies for vote on acceptance as an OASIS specification.
Aberdeen's analysis of companies with current encryption initiatives involving enterprise key management found that the combined difference in costs avoided plus costs saved provided an advantage of nearly $100 per end-user per year over those that did not, in addition to the ability to support encryption in greater diversity and at higher scale. The Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) is seen to be an important enabling technology for enterprise key management that merits greater attention from enterprise buyers and evaluators.

"OASIS KMIP provides the blueprint - 2010 saw KMIP products in development, 2011 brought products from the early adopters and in 2012 deployed interoperability via KMIP is now a reality. As one of the first vendors supporting both KMIP v1.0 and v1.1, Cryptsoft is committed to enabling industry adoption of KMIP. Our SDKs and adaptors enable our clients to both embrace KMIP and support existing non-KMIP solutions." -- Tim Hudson, Chief Security Architect (Cryptsoft)
