The Dynamic Symmetric Key Provisioning Protocol (DSKPP) is a
client-server protocol for initialization (and configuration) of
symmetric keys to locally and remotely accessible cryptographic
modules.  The protocol can be run with or without private key
capabilities in the cryptographic modules and with or without an
established public key infrastructure.

Two variations of the protocol support multiple usage scenarios.  With
the four-pass variant, keys are mutually generated by the provisioning
server and cryptographic module; provisioned keys are not transferred
over-the-wire or over-the-air.  The two-pass variant enables secure
and efficient download and installation of pre-generated symmetric
keys to a cryptographic module.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
