This part of IEC 62351 specifies cryptographic key management, with respect to the management of long-term keys, which are most often asymmetric key pairs, such as certificates and corresponding private keys.
Throughout the document security events are defined as warnings and incidents. These security events are intended to support error handling and thus to increase system resilience. Implementations should provide a mechanism for announcing security events.
