Key Management Framework as a FIPS 140 Consumer

The Key Management Framework (KMF) manages cryptographic keys and cryptographic policy in Oracle Solaris. pktool is the KMF command for creating symmetric and asymmetric keys. As the KMF administrator, you are responsible for choosing FIPS 140 algorithms that are validated for Oracle Solaris. See examples in How to Create a Certificate by Using the pktool gencert Command in Managing Encryption and Certificates in Oracle Solaris 11.2 and the pktool(1) man page.
