Title: A Framework for Designing Cryptographic Key Management Systems
Category: Security Control Implementation Guide
Description: A set of documentation requirements that can be used to express the design of a cryptographic key management system (CKMS). The CKMS is the policies, procedures, components and devices that together provide the functionality of the CKMS. As with IETF RFC 3647, this is not a design or set of functional requirements, but a framework for specifying requirements. The scope of a CKMS includes protection of both cryptographic keys as well as the metadata associated with those keys, such as the digital identity associated with the key. The link between a key and selected metadata elements is called a trusted association, a traditional example of such a trusted association would be an X.509 digital certificate, which links the subject identity with their public key in a trusted fashion.
Privacy: Contains functional requirements related to privacy, requiring the CKMS design to specify the support for the anonymity, unlinkability and unobservability, when it is utilized and how it is technically achieved,
Interoperability: The purpose of the document is to provide a common means of specifying the design of a CKMS.
