This guide describes how to use the Vormetric external key management solution for NetApp® ONTAP® 9 data management software.
Storage encryption (SE) is fully compatible with the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM). This means that Vormetric’s DSM can serve as a key manager for SE through the use of an open standard called the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP). In addition to supporting SE, the DSM administers the Vormetric Transparent Encryption and Vormetric Application Encryption products.
This document describes the process of configuring NetApp ONTAP 9 data management software with a Vormetric DSM.
