The Cloud Key Management Working Group will facilitate the standards for seamless integration between Cloud Service Providers and Key Broker vendor platforms. It will ensure that enterprise key policies are standardized and implemented in a consistent manner, and that standardization will take place across key management lifecycle operations and a common set of APIs. Customer-centric in principle, our goal will be that for any data stored or traversing the cloud and requiring encryption the corresponding encryption keys will be protected and their lifecycle managed by the customer.

The purpose of the Cloud Key Management Working Group is:

  • To create a consortium whose purpose is to align cloud key management interoperability standards across cloud service providers, SaaS vendors, and security service/product vendors
  • To maintain API and key interoperability specifications and consider developing enhancements
  • To develop business model templates and/or specifications that advise/consider appropriate license-based models for standardized key interoperability
  • To promote the adoption of key management standards for vendors, cloud service, and SaaS providers
  • To promote independent Key Brokering implementation interoperability among vendors, cloud services, and SaaS providers per acceptable IP guidelines
  • To provide well documented guidelines and a standard approach to vendors to ensure seamless interoperability and compliance to those guidelines/standards
