          And here’s a Powerpoint-presentation with 36 slides from the NIST about exactly your question: the Key Management Lifecycle.

          Doesn’t seem to me something you design, program and implement yourself. It should be integrated in any OS or application you use that uses keys. That’s what standards are for.

          All your organisation has to do is to use it in a safe way (e.g. forbid writing passwords on sticky papers attached to monitors). But that probably isn’t what your assigment involves.
