Key Management Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Provides a secure environment to research and develop advanced electronic key management and networked key distribution technologies for the Navy and DoD. In conjunction with the Cryptographic Technology Laboratory, this lab also serves as a testbed for new key management components and key delivery protocols developed for the Electronic Key Management System (EKMS) and the emerging Key Management Infrastructure (KMI).DESCRIPTION: The Key Management Laboratory is used to develop networked key distribution architectures, secure key delivery techniques, and protocols for enhanced key delivery to the warfighter. This lab serves as the development site for the Net Key Management Segment (NKMS) key server suite, key distribution guarding techniques, single point keying, and secure wireless keyfill techniques. Powered by a high-performance network of workstations, servers, databases, network security components, and state-of-the-art development tools, the lab supports development of key management applications and a secure client-server framework for netted key distribution. A secure software development environment provides for J2EE programming, web and database applications, XML programming, key distribution guard development, and modeling of advanced protocols for key/data delivery over Ethernet and secure wireless networks. The lab is also equipped with EKMS components (current and prototype models), legacy and next-generation key-fill devices, and crypto key material to support interoperability testing and validation of new applications.
