This paper investigates interoperability problems arising from the use of dissimilar key recovery mechanisms in encrypted communications. The components that can cause interoperability problems are identified and a protocol is proposed where two communicating entities can negotiate the key recovery mechanism(s) to be used. The ultimate goal is to provide the entities a means to agree either on a mutually acceptable KRM or on different, yet interoperable, mechanisms of their choice.
