Key Management Service (KMS) is a secure, reliable and easy-to-use cloud service that helps users create, manage and protect keys centrally. It uses hardware security modules (HSM) to protect keys. All keys are protected by root keys in the HSMs to prevent key leakage. KMS implements access control and log tracking for all key operations and provides usage records for all keys to meet audit and compliance requirements.
