Cryptographic Key Management Workshop 2014


NIST is conducting a two-day Key Management Workshop on March 4-5, 2014. The workshop is being held to discuss a draft of NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-152 (“A Profile for U.S. Federal CKMS”) that will be available for public comment prior to the workshop. This draft is based on the requirements in SP 800-130 (“A Framework for Designing Cryptographic Key Management Systems”), but extends beyond SP 800-130 to establish specific requirements for Federal organizations desiring to use or operate a CKMS, either directly or under contract; recommends augmentations to these requirements for those Federal CKMSs requiring additional security; and suggests additional features for consideration. This Profile addresses the topics included in SP 800-130, and also includes discussions on CKMS testing, procurement, installation, administration, operation, maintenance and use.

While the Profile is intended for use by the U.S. Federal government, it may also be used by other public or private sectors as a model for the development of their own profile.

Input from the workshop participants will be solicited regarding the utility and feasibility of these requirements, recommended augmentations and suggested features. This input, along with comments received during the public comment period will be incorporated into the next version of SP 800-152.

Webcast: The event will be webcast live on March 4-5, 2014. Registration is not required to view the webcast. Details will be posted when available.
Reference Documentation: Printed copies of NIST SP 800-152 will not be available at the workshop. If you would like to reference the document while at the workshop, please bring an electronic or printed copy of the document. Note that internet access will be available to the attendees.
