FIPS 140-2

Key Transport - secure transport of cryptographic keys from one cryptographic module to another module.

NIST IR 7298

Key Transport - The secure transport of cryptographic keys from one cryptographic module to another module. SOURCE: FIPS 140-2

NIST SP 800-120

Key Transport - A procedure to deliver a key from one entity to another entity in a protected manner. In this Recommendation, key transport refers to key delivery from the EAP server to another entity, for example, to an authenticator.

NIST SP 800-56A

Key Transport - A key establishment procedure whereby one party (the sender) selects a value for the secret keying material and then securely distributes that value to another party (the receiver). Contrast with key agreement.

NIST SP 800-57P1

Key Transport - A key establishment procedure whereby one party (the sender) selects and encrypts the keying material and then distributes the material to another party (the receiver). When used in conjunction with a public key (asymmetric) algorithm, the keying material is encrypted using the public key of the receiver and subsequently decrypted using the private key of the receiver. When used in conjunction with a symmetric algorithm, the keying material is wrapped with a key encrypting key shared by the two parties.

NIST SP 800-57P2

Key Transport - Secure transport of cryptographic keys from one cryptographic module to another module. When used in conjunction with a public key (asymmetric) algorithm, keying material is encrypted using a public key and subsequently decrypted using a private key. When used in conjunction with a symmetric algorithm, key transport is known as key wrapping.
