Published: June 18, 2010
Abstract: NIST Special Publication 800-73-3 introduces the ability to store retired Key Management Keys within the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card Application on a PIV Card. This paper complements SP 800-73-3 by providing some of the rationale for the design of the mechanism for storing retired Key Management Keys on PIV Cards and by providing suggestions to smart card vendors, PIV Card Issuers, and middleware developers on the use of the Key History mechanism
