BRISBANE, Australia, March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryptsoft, the OEM provider of choice for KMIP (Key management Interoperability Protocol) technology, has provided its KMIP Interoperability Test Suite to SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) to underpin the SNIA KMIP Conformance Testing Program. The program is a vendor-independent testing service for interoperability conformance testing of implementations of the OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) KMIP specification.
"As an independent technical industry organisation, vendors and IT professionals trust SNIA to deliver robust conformance testing programs to meet their needs. All of our testing programs are developed to ensure specification conformance with integrity, independence, control and confidentiality principles. The global technology vendors participating within the SNIA organization jointly establish rigorous conformance test operating procedures that are delivered at our SNIA Technology Center and further extended through the worldwide internet. Working closely with members of the Cryptsoft team, SNIA developed a KMIP conformance test program that validates security key management interoperability across servers and clients. Cryptsoft's tools, commitment, and staff are all essential for this program to be available to the industry in a timely fashion," said Wayne M. Adams, Chairman Emeritus of SNIA.
SNIA members developed the foundations of the KMIP conformance testing program with input from core OASIS KMIP Technical Committee member companies over the last two years to establish both the technical and legal framework to provide confidence for vendors testing both released and pre-release products.
"Working with SNIA on this program was an excellent demonstration of the suitability of our technology both in the production product context of our traditional customers and that of a conformance testing program where correctness and verifiability are paramount. Both vendors and customers can now benefit from the added confidence that vendor interoperability claims are able to be independently verified by a trusted third party organisation such as SNIA," said Tim Hudson, CTO, Cryptsoft.
