Cryptsoft, the major OEM provider of technology to the enterprise key management security market today announced the latest release of a converged key management and hardware security module solution.

Cryptsoft has addressed the challenges of greater visibility and control of the various keys in use within the enterprise by extending the Cryptsoft KMIP Server SDK to fully support the Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) from Oracle, SafeNet and Thales.

"The OASIS PKCS#11 v2.40 committee specification provides the only cross-vendor, platform-neutral API for interaction with the full range of security devices from smartcards to hardware security modules. PKCS#11 addresses the integration requirements for security-aware applications and services. The OASIS KMIP specification is entirely complementary to PKCS#11 and both groups are working together to enable interoperable solutions at each level of the software architecture stack." said Dr Robert Griffin, co-chair OASIS PKCS#11 TC, Chair Emeritus OASIS KMIP TC and Chief Security Architect, RSA the security division of EMC.
