One of the largest showings of support for security standards in RSA Conference history is happening this week. The nonprofit OASIS open standards consortium has brought together 24 companies to demonstrate support for the STIX and TAXII cyber threat intelligence standards, Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard, and the Public-Key Cryptography Standard (PKCS) #11. The demos are being held in Booths 2121 and 2115 from 13-16 February.

"This year's RSA Conference enables us to demonstrate both the latest work of the Technical Committees and the depth of capabilities within products that implement these standards.
Demonstrating interoperability between these products live at the RSA Conference reinforces the reality of choice of vendor solutions for CIOs, CSOs and CTOs, enabling products from multiple vendors to be deployed as a single enterprise security solution that addresses both current and future requirements."
said Tony Cox of Cryptsoft, co-chair of the OASIS KMIP and PKCS#11 Technical Committees and KMIP and PKCS#11 Interop Lead.

"Reliable storage, availability and lifecycle management of security objects has become a focus for enterprises; interoperability between key management, security, and encryption systems is no longer 'nice-to-have' but essential. The OASIS KMIP and PKCS #11 standards provide mechanisms to address the fundamental interoperability requirement enabling migration from single point ad-hoc products to full enterprise security solutions. As a major OEM technology supplier, supplying OASIS conformant solutions ensures interoperability is a reality for our customers." said Tim Hudson, CTO at Cryptsoft.
