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.
The event will be webcast live on March 4-5, 2014. Registration is not required to view the webcast. Particpants can tweet using #NISTkmw14 and/or submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
