Key Orchestration™ (KO) is an advanced, centralized encryption key management ecosystem that automates the key lifecycle across the entire enterprise with groundbreaking precision and speed. KO leverages Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), Public Key Cryptography Standards #11 (PKCS#11), and Common Event Format (CEF) as standards-based approaches for key management. The KMIP protocol extends Key Orchestration's ability to provide hardware solutions validated up to FIPs 140-2 level 3 and a FIPS 140-2 compliant virtual solution. Fully extensible, its ability to expand capability while supporting existing services enables Key Orchestration to append new technologies and services while maintaining a highly interoperable and secure environment. Mandatory access controls through positional security and policy, and discretionary access controls through KMIP grouping allowing the Key Orchestration server to provide secure key lifecycle from the data center to the tactical edge. Capacity to support hundreds of millions of keys while supporting mobile adhoc networking, tactical communications, and file or object-level encryption positions the Fornetix Key Orchestration™ in a class unsurpassed by any other KMS solution on the market.
