Pattern language for cryptographic key management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


Many services in a distributed public network - like the Internet - require secure communications. Security in communications consists of confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, and non-repudiability. These aims can be achieved with cryptography. Key management plays a fundamental role in secure communications, as it is the basis if all cryptographic functions.
