NIST seeks comments on crypto management system

The National Institutes for Standards and Technology is requesting comments on its Draft Special Publication (SP) 800-152, A Profile for U.S. Federal Cryptographic Key Management Systems. SP 800-152 contains requirements for the design, implementation, procurement, installation, configuration, management, operation, and use of Cryptographic Key Management Systems (CKMS) by federal organizations.

CKMS includes the computers, software, modules, communication, and roles assumed by one or more authorized individuals when managing and using cryptographic key management services.

This draft profile specifies topics that should be considered by a CKMS designer when selecting capabilities that a CKMS will have and the cryptographic key management services it will support.

This profile replicates all of the requirements that must be satisfied in a CKMS and its design documentation, and it includes information about installing, configuring, operating and maintaining a federal CKMS.

Comments should be sent to FederalCKMSProfile@nist.gov by March 5, 2014, with “Comments on SP 800-152” on the subject line.
