Initial Description or Hints

Before exporting, keys should be "wrapped" or encrypted with another key. This process ensures that the cryptographic key is protected during and after export. This is true even if the key is sent over a secure channel.

Relevant Topics

  • key wrapping (NIST.SP.800-175Br1 5.3.5)
