At the RSA Conference 2018, members of the OASIS international consortium collaborate to demonstrate their support for new features in two of the industry's most widely-adopted security standards, the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) Standard and the Public-Key Cryptography (PKCS) #11 Standard.

"As the need to encrypt data within the enterprise continues to grow, especially in the face of GDPR and mandatory data breach notice compliance, so too does the need to manage the keys, certificates, and security-relevant information. It is this need that drives the continual evolution of the standards that enable secure and seamless integration of critical cybersecurity tools into the enterprise.
The demonstration of both the KMIP and PKCS#11 standards provides booth attendees with a clear view of how mainstream products are implementing conformant solutions and showing live interaction between vendor solutions."
said Tony Cox of Cryptsoft, co-chair of the OASIS KMIP and PKCS#11 Technical Committees and Lead for both the KMIP and PKCS11 Interop events.
