KMS

Table of Contents

Client

class KMS.Client

A low-level client representing AWS Key Management Service (KMS):

client = session.create_client('kms')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
cancel_key_deletion(**kwargs)

Cancels the deletion of a customer master key (CMK). When this operation is successful, the CMK is set to the Disabled state. To enable a CMK, use EnableKey . You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

For more information about scheduling and canceling deletion of a CMK, see Deleting Customer Master Keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.cancel_key_deletion(
    KeyId='string'
)
Parameters
KeyId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK) for which to cancel deletion.

Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

For example:

  • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

Return type
dict
Returns
Response Syntax
{
    'KeyId': 'string'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
    • KeyId (string) --

      The unique identifier of the master key for which deletion is canceled.

Examples

The following example cancels deletion of the specified CMK.

response = client.cancel_key_deletion(
    # The identifier of the CMK whose deletion you are canceling. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
    KeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    # The ARN of the CMK whose deletion you canceled.
    'KeyId': 'arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
connect_custom_key_store(**kwargs)

Connects or reconnects a custom key store to its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster.

The custom key store must be connected before you can create customer master keys (CMKs) in the key store or use the CMKs it contains. You can disconnect and reconnect a custom key store at any time.

To connect a custom key store, its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster must have at least one active HSM. To get the number of active HSMs in a cluster, use the DescribeClusters operation. To add HSMs to the cluster, use the CreateHsm operation.

The connection process can take an extended amount of time to complete; up to 20 minutes. This operation starts the connection process, but it does not wait for it to complete. When it succeeds, this operation quickly returns an HTTP 200 response and a JSON object with no properties. However, this response does not indicate that the custom key store is connected. To get the connection state of the custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation.

During the connection process, AWS KMS finds the AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store, creates the connection infrastructure, connects to the cluster, logs into the AWS CloudHSM client as the ` kmsuser crypto user <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/key-store-concepts.html#concept-kmsuser>`__ (CU), and rotates its password.

The ConnectCustomKeyStore operation might fail for various reasons. To find the reason, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation and see the ConnectionErrorCode in the response. For help interpreting the ConnectionErrorCode , see CustomKeyStoresListEntry .

To fix the failure, use the DisconnectCustomKeyStore operation to disconnect the custom key store, correct the error, use the UpdateCustomKeyStore operation if necessary, and then use ConnectCustomKeyStore again.

If you are having trouble connecting or disconnecting a custom key store, see Troubleshooting a Custom Key Store in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Request Syntax

response = client.connect_custom_key_store(
    CustomKeyStoreId='string'
)
Parameters
CustomKeyStoreId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

Enter the key store ID of the custom key store that you want to connect. To find the ID of a custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation.

Return type

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
create_alias(**kwargs)

Creates a display name for a customer managed customer master key (CMK). You can use an alias to identify a CMK in selected operations, such as Encrypt and GenerateDataKey .

Each CMK can have multiple aliases, but each alias points to only one CMK. The alias name must be unique in the AWS account and region. To simplify code that runs in multiple regions, use the same alias name, but point it to a different CMK in each region.

Because an alias is not a property of a CMK, you can delete and change the aliases of a CMK without affecting the CMK. Also, aliases do not appear in the response from the DescribeKey operation. To get the aliases of all CMKs, use the ListAliases operation.

The alias name must begin with alias/ followed by a name, such as alias/ExampleAlias . It can contain only alphanumeric characters, forward slashes (/), underscores (_), and dashes (-). The alias name cannot begin with alias/aws/ . The alias/aws/ prefix is reserved for AWS managed CMKs .

The alias and the CMK it is mapped to must be in the same AWS account and the same region. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.

To map an existing alias to a different CMK, call UpdateAlias .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.create_alias(
    AliasName='string',
    TargetKeyId='string'
)
Parameters
  • AliasName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the alias name. This value must begin with alias/ followed by a name, such as alias/ExampleAlias . The alias name cannot begin with alias/aws/ . The alias/aws/ prefix is reserved for AWS managed CMKs.

  • TargetKeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifies the CMK to which the alias refers. Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK. You cannot specify another alias. For help finding the key ID and ARN, see Finding the Key ID and ARN in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Returns

None

Examples

The following example creates an alias for the specified customer master key (CMK).

response = client.create_alias(
    # The alias to create. Aliases must begin with 'alias/'. Do not use aliases that begin with 'alias/aws' because they are reserved for use by AWS.
    AliasName='alias/ExampleAlias',
    # The identifier of the CMK whose alias you are creating. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
    TargetKeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
create_custom_key_store(**kwargs)

Creates a custom key store that is associated with an AWS CloudHSM cluster that you own and manage.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

Before you create the custom key store, you must assemble the required elements, including an AWS CloudHSM cluster that fulfills the requirements for a custom key store. For details about the required elements, see Assemble the Prerequisites in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

When the operation completes successfully, it returns the ID of the new custom key store. Before you can use your new custom key store, you need to use the ConnectCustomKeyStore operation to connect the new key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster. Even if you are not going to use your custom key store immediately, you might want to connect it to verify that all settings are correct and then disconnect it until you are ready to use it.

For help with failures, see Troubleshooting a Custom Key Store in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

)
Parameters
  • CustomKeyStoreName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies a friendly name for the custom key store. The name must be unique in your AWS account.

  • CloudHsmClusterId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifies the AWS CloudHSM cluster for the custom key store. Enter the cluster ID of any active AWS CloudHSM cluster that is not already associated with a custom key store. To find the cluster ID, use the DescribeClusters operation.

  • TrustAnchorCertificate (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Enter the content of the trust anchor certificate for the cluster. This is the content of the customerCA.crt file that you created when you initialized the cluster .

  • KeyStorePassword (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Enter the password of the ` kmsuser crypto user (CU) account <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/key-store-concepts.html#concept-kmsuser>`__ in the specified AWS CloudHSM cluster. AWS KMS logs into the cluster as this user to manage key material on your behalf.

    This parameter tells AWS KMS the kmsuser account password; it does not change the password in the AWS CloudHSM cluster.

    'CustomKeyStoreId': 'string'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • CustomKeyStoreId (string) --

      A unique identifier for the new custom key store.

create_grant(**kwargs)

Adds a grant to a customer master key (CMK). The grant allows the grantee principal to use the CMK when the conditions specified in the grant are met. When setting permissions, grants are an alternative to key policies.

To create a grant that allows a cryptographic operation only when the encryption context in the operation request matches or includes a specified encryption context, use the Constraints parameter. For details, see GrantConstraints .

To perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account, specify the key ARN in the value of the KeyId parameter. For more information about grants, see Grants in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK. To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

  • GranteePrincipal (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The principal that is given permission to perform the operations that the grant permits.

    To specify the principal, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an AWS principal. Valid AWS principals include AWS accounts (root), IAM users, IAM roles, federated users, and assumed role users. For examples of the ARN syntax to use for specifying a principal, see AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) in the Example ARNs section of the AWS General Reference .

  • RetiringPrincipal (string) --

    The principal that is given permission to retire the grant by using RetireGrant operation.

    To specify the principal, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an AWS principal. Valid AWS principals include AWS accounts (root), IAM users, federated users, and assumed role users. For examples of the ARN syntax to use for specifying a principal, see AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) in the Example ARNs section of the AWS General Reference .

  • Operations (list) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A list of operations that the grant permits.

    • (string) --
  • Constraints (dict) --

    Allows a cryptographic operation only when the encryption context matches or includes the encryption context specified in this structure. For more information about encryption context, see Encryption Context in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .

    • EncryptionContextSubset (dict) --

      A list of key-value pairs that must be included in the encryption context of the cryptographic operation request. The grant allows the cryptographic operation only when the encryption context in the request includes the key-value pairs specified in this constraint, although it can include additional key-value pairs.

      • (string) --
        • (string) --
    • EncryptionContextEquals (dict) --

      A list of key-value pairs that must match the encryption context in the cryptographic operation request. The grant allows the operation only when the encryption context in the request is the same as the encryption context specified in this constraint.

      • (string) --
        • (string) --
  • GrantTokens (list) --

    A list of grant tokens.

    For more information, see Grant Tokens in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    • (string) --
  • Name (string) --

    A friendly name for identifying the grant. Use this value to prevent the unintended creation of duplicate grants when retrying this request.

    When this value is absent, all CreateGrant requests result in a new grant with a unique GrantId even if all the supplied parameters are identical. This can result in unintended duplicates when you retry the CreateGrant request.

    When this value is present, you can retry a CreateGrant request with identical parameters; if the grant already exists, the original GrantId is returned without creating a new grant. Note that the returned grant token is unique with every CreateGrant request, even when a duplicate GrantId is returned. All grant tokens obtained in this way can be used interchangeably.

create_key(**kwargs)

Creates a customer managed customer master key (CMK) in your AWS account.

You can use a CMK to encrypt small amounts of data (up to 4096 bytes) directly. But CMKs are more commonly used to encrypt the data keys that are used to encrypt data.

To create a CMK for imported key material, use the Origin parameter with a value of EXTERNAL .

To create a CMK in a custom key store , use the CustomKeyStoreId parameter to specify the custom key store. You must also use the Origin parameter with a value of AWS_CLOUDHSM . The AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store must have at least two active HSMs in different Availability Zones in the AWS Region.

You cannot use this operation to create a CMK in a different AWS account.

        },
    ]
)
Parameters
  • Policy (string) --

    The key policy to attach to the CMK.

    If you provide a key policy, it must meet the following criteria:

    • If you don't set BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck to true, the key policy must allow the principal that is making the CreateKey request to make a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK. This reduces the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section of the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .
    • Each statement in the key policy must contain one or more principals. The principals in the key policy must exist and be visible to AWS KMS. When you create a new AWS principal (for example, an IAM user or role), you might need to enforce a delay before including the new principal in a key policy because the new principal might not be immediately visible to AWS KMS. For more information, see Changes that I make are not always immediately visible in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide .

    If you do not provide a key policy, AWS KMS attaches a default key policy to the CMK. For more information, see Default Key Policy in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    The key policy size limit is 32 kilobytes (32768 bytes).

  • Description (string) --

    A description of the CMK.

    Use a description that helps you decide whether the CMK is appropriate for a task.

  • KeyUsage (string) -- The cryptographic operations for which you can use the CMK. The only valid value is ENCRYPT_DECRYPT , which means you can use the CMK to encrypt and decrypt data.
  • Origin (string) --

    The source of the key material for the CMK. You cannot change the origin after you create the CMK.

    The default is AWS_KMS , which means AWS KMS creates the key material in its own key store.

    When the parameter value is EXTERNAL , AWS KMS creates a CMK without key material so that you can import key material from your existing key management infrastructure. For more information about importing key material into AWS KMS, see Importing Key Material in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    When the parameter value is AWS_CLOUDHSM , AWS KMS creates the CMK in an AWS KMS custom key store and creates its key material in the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. You must also use the CustomKeyStoreId parameter to identify the custom key store.

  • CustomKeyStoreId (string) --

    Creates the CMK in the specified custom key store and the key material in its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. To create a CMK in a custom key store, you must also specify the Origin parameter with a value of AWS_CLOUDHSM . The AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store must have at least two active HSMs, each in a different Availability Zone in the Region.

    To find the ID of a custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation.

    The response includes the custom key store ID and the ID of the AWS CloudHSM cluster.

    This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

  • BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck (boolean) --

    A flag to indicate whether to bypass the key policy lockout safety check.

    Warning

    Setting this value to true increases the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. Do not set this value to true indiscriminately.

    For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .

    Use this parameter only when you include a policy in the request and you intend to prevent the principal that is making the request from making a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK.

    The default value is false.

  • Tags (list) --

    One or more tags. Each tag consists of a tag key and a tag value. Tag keys and tag values are both required, but tag values can be empty (null) strings.

    Use this parameter to tag the CMK when it is created. Alternately, you can omit this parameter and instead tag the CMK after it is created using TagResource .

    • (dict) --

      A key-value pair. A tag consists of a tag key and a tag value. Tag keys and tag values are both required, but tag values can be empty (null) strings.

      For information about the rules that apply to tag keys and tag values, see User-Defined Tag Restrictions in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide .

      • TagKey (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The key of the tag.

      • TagValue (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The value of the tag.

}
decrypt(**kwargs)

Decrypts ciphertext. Ciphertext is plaintext that has been previously encrypted by using any of the following operations:

  • GenerateDataKey
  • GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext
  • Encrypt

Whenever possible, use key policies to give users permission to call the Decrypt operation on the CMK, instead of IAM policies. Otherwise, you might create an IAM user policy that gives the user Decrypt permission on all CMKs. This user could decrypt ciphertext that was encrypted by CMKs in other accounts if the key policy for the cross-account CMK permits it. If you must use an IAM policy for Decrypt permissions, limit the user to particular CMKs or particular trusted accounts.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Response Syntax

{
    'KeyId': 'string',
    'Plaintext': b'bytes'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • KeyId (string) --

      ARN of the key used to perform the decryption. This value is returned if no errors are encountered during the operation.

    • Plaintext (bytes) --

      Decrypted plaintext data. When you use the HTTP API or the AWS CLI, the value is Base64-encoded. Otherwise, it is not encoded.

Examples

The following example decrypts data that was encrypted with a customer master key (CMK) in AWS KMS.

response = client.decrypt(
    # The encrypted data (ciphertext).
    CiphertextBlob='<binary data>',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    # The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK that was used to decrypt the data.
    'KeyId': 'arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
    # The decrypted (plaintext) data.
    'Plaintext': '<binary data>',
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
delete_alias(**kwargs)

Deletes the specified alias. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.

Because an alias is not a property of a CMK, you can delete and change the aliases of a CMK without affecting the CMK. Also, aliases do not appear in the response from the DescribeKey operation. To get the aliases of all CMKs, use the ListAliases operation.

Each CMK can have multiple aliases. To change the alias of a CMK, use DeleteAlias to delete the current alias and CreateAlias to create a new alias. To associate an existing alias with a different customer master key (CMK), call UpdateAlias .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_alias(
    AliasName='string'
)
Parameters
AliasName (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The alias to be deleted. The alias name must begin with alias/ followed by the alias name, such as alias/ExampleAlias .

Returns
None

Examples

The following example deletes the specified alias.

response = client.delete_alias(
    # The alias to delete.
    AliasName='alias/ExampleAlias',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
delete_custom_key_store(**kwargs)

Deletes a custom key store . This operation does not delete the AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store, or affect any users or keys in the cluster.

The custom key store that you delete cannot contain any AWS KMS customer master keys (CMKs) . Before deleting the key store, verify that you will never need to use any of the CMKs in the key store for any cryptographic operations. Then, use ScheduleKeyDeletion to delete the AWS KMS customer master keys (CMKs) from the key store. When the scheduled waiting period expires, the ScheduleKeyDeletion operation deletes the CMKs. Then it makes a best effort to delete the key material from the associated cluster. However, you might need to manually delete the orphaned key material from the cluster and its backups.

After all CMKs are deleted from AWS KMS, use DisconnectCustomKeyStore to disconnect the key store from AWS KMS. Then, you can delete the custom key store.

Instead of deleting the custom key store, consider using DisconnectCustomKeyStore to disconnect it from AWS KMS. While the key store is disconnected, you cannot create or use the CMKs in the key store. But, you do not need to delete CMKs and you can reconnect a disconnected custom key store at any time.

If the operation succeeds, it returns a JSON object with no properties.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_custom_key_store(
    CustomKeyStoreId='string'

Parameters
CustomKeyStoreId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

Enter the ID of the custom key store you want to delete. To find the ID of a custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation.

Return type
dict
Returns

{}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
delete_imported_key_material(**kwargs)

Deletes key material that you previously imported. This operation makes the specified customer master key (CMK) unusable. For more information about importing key material into AWS KMS, see Importing Key Material in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide . You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

When the specified CMK is in the PendingDeletion state, this operation does not change the CMK's state. Otherwise, it changes the CMK's state to PendingImport .

After you delete key material, you can use ImportKeyMaterial to reimport the same key material into the CMK.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_imported_key_material(
    KeyId='string'
)
Parameters
KeyId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

Identifies the CMK from which you are deleting imported key material. The Origin of the CMK must be EXTERNAL .

Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

For example:

  • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

Returns
None

Examples

The following example deletes the imported key material from the specified customer master key (CMK).

response = client.delete_imported_key_material(
    # The identifier of the CMK whose imported key material you are deleting. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
    KeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
describe_custom_key_stores(**kwargs)

Gets information about custom key stores in the account and region.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

By default, this operation returns information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To get only information about a particular custom key store, use either the CustomKeyStoreName or CustomKeyStoreId parameter (but not both).

To determine whether the custom key store is connected to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, use the ConnectionState element in the response. If an attempt to connect the custom key store failed, the ConnectionState value is FAILED and the ConnectionErrorCode element in the response indicates the cause of the failure. For help interpreting the ConnectionErrorCode , see CustomKeyStoresListEntry .

Custom key stores have a DISCONNECTED connection state if the key store has never been connected or you use the DisconnectCustomKeyStore operation to disconnect it. If your custom key store state is CONNECTED but you are having trouble using it, make sure that its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster is active and contains the minimum number of HSMs required for the operation, if any.

For help repairing your custom key store, see the Troubleshooting Custom Key Stores topic in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

disconnect_custom_key_store(**kwargs)

Disconnects the custom key store from its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. While a custom key store is disconnected, you can manage the custom key store and its customer master keys (CMKs), but you cannot create or use CMKs in the custom key store. You can reconnect the custom key store at any time.

Note

While a custom key store is disconnected, all attempts to create customer master keys (CMKs) in the custom key store or to use existing CMKs in cryptographic operations will fail. This action can prevent users from storing and accessing sensitive data.

To find the connection state of a custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation. To reconnect a custom key store, use the ConnectCustomKeyStore operation.

If the operation succeeds, it returns a JSON object with no properties.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

encrypt(**kwargs)

Encrypts plaintext into ciphertext by using a customer master key (CMK). The Encrypt operation has two primary use cases:

  • You can encrypt up to 4 kilobytes (4096 bytes) of arbitrary data such as an RSA key, a database password, or other sensitive information.
  • You can use the Encrypt operation to move encrypted data from one AWS region to another. In the first region, generate a data key and use the plaintext key to encrypt the data. Then, in the new region, call the Encrypt method on same plaintext data key. Now, you can safely move the encrypted data and encrypted data key to the new region, and decrypt in the new region when necessary.

You don't need use this operation to encrypt a data key within a region. The GenerateDataKey and GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext operations return an encrypted data key.

Also, you don't need to use this operation to encrypt data in your application. You can use the plaintext and encrypted data keys that the GenerateDataKey operation returns.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

To perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account, specify the key ARN or alias ARN in the value of the KeyId parameter.

    'CiphertextBlob': b'bytes',
    'KeyId': 'string'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • CiphertextBlob (bytes) --

      The encrypted plaintext. When you use the HTTP API or the AWS CLI, the value is Base64-encoded. Otherwise, it is not encoded.

    • KeyId (string) --

      The ID of the key used during encryption.

Examples

The following example encrypts data with the specified customer master key (CMK).

response = client.encrypt(
    # The identifier of the CMK to use for encryption. You can use the key ID or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK, or the name or ARN of an alias that refers to the CMK.
    KeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
    # The data to encrypt.
    Plaintext='<binary data>',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    # The encrypted data (ciphertext).
    'CiphertextBlob': '<binary data>',
    # The ARN of the CMK that was used to encrypt the data.
    'KeyId': 'arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
generate_data_key(**kwargs)

Generates a unique data key. This operation returns a plaintext copy of the data key and a copy that is encrypted under a customer master key (CMK) that you specify. You can use the plaintext key to encrypt your data outside of KMS and store the encrypted data key with the encrypted data.

GenerateDataKey returns a unique data key for each request. The bytes in the key are not related to the caller or CMK that is used to encrypt the data key.

To generate a data key, you need to specify the customer master key (CMK) that will be used to encrypt the data key. You must also specify the length of the data key using either the KeySpec or NumberOfBytes field (but not both). For common key lengths (128-bit and 256-bit symmetric keys), we recommend that you use KeySpec . To perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account, specify the key ARN or alias ARN in the value of the KeyId parameter.

You will find the plaintext copy of the data key in the Plaintext field of the response, and the encrypted copy of the data key in the CiphertextBlob field.

We recommend that you use the following pattern to encrypt data locally in your application:

  • Use the GenerateDataKey operation to get a data encryption key.
  • Use the plaintext data key (returned in the Plaintext field of the response) to encrypt data locally, then erase the plaintext data key from memory.
  • Store the encrypted data key (returned in the CiphertextBlob field of the response) alongside the locally encrypted data.

To decrypt data locally:

  • Use the Decrypt operation to decrypt the encrypted data key. The operation returns a plaintext copy of the data key.
  • Use the plaintext data key to decrypt data locally, then erase the plaintext data key from memory.

To get only an encrypted copy of the data key, use GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext . To get a cryptographically secure random byte string, use GenerateRandom .

You can use the optional encryption context to add additional security to your encryption operation. When you specify an EncryptionContext in the GenerateDataKey operation, you must specify the same encryption context (a case-sensitive exact match) in your request to Decrypt the data key. Otherwise, the request to decrypt fails with an InvalidCiphertextException . For more information, see Encryption Context in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Returns

Response Syntax

{
    'CiphertextBlob': b'bytes',
    'Plaintext': b'bytes',
    'KeyId': 'string'
}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • CiphertextBlob (bytes) --

      The encrypted copy of the data key. When you use the HTTP API or the AWS CLI, the value is Base64-encoded. Otherwise, it is not encoded.

    • Plaintext (bytes) --

      The plaintext data key. When you use the HTTP API or the AWS CLI, the value is Base64-encoded. Otherwise, it is not encoded. Use this data key to encrypt your data outside of KMS. Then, remove it from memory as soon as possible.

    • KeyId (string) --

      The identifier of the CMK that encrypted the data key.

Examples

The following example generates a 256-bit symmetric data encryption key (data key) in two formats. One is the unencrypted (plainext) data key, and the other is the data key encrypted with the specified customer master key (CMK).

response = client.generate_data_key(
    # The identifier of the CMK to use to encrypt the data key. You can use the key ID or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK, or the name or ARN of an alias that refers to the CMK.
    KeyId='alias/ExampleAlias',
    # Specifies the type of data key to return.
    KeySpec='AES_256',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    # The encrypted data key.
    'CiphertextBlob': '<binary data>',
    # The ARN of the CMK that was used to encrypt the data key.
    'KeyId': 'arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
    # The unencrypted (plaintext) data key.
    'Plaintext': '<binary data>',
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
generate_data_key_without_plaintext(**kwargs)

Generates a unique data key. This operation returns a data key that is encrypted under a customer master key (CMK) that you specify. GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext is identical to GenerateDataKey except that returns only the encrypted copy of the data key.

Like GenerateDataKey , GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext returns a unique data key for each request. The bytes in the key are not related to the caller or CMK that is used to encrypt the data key.

This operation is useful for systems that need to encrypt data at some point, but not immediately. When you need to encrypt the data, you call the Decrypt operation on the encrypted copy of the key.

It's also useful in distributed systems with different levels of trust. For example, you might store encrypted data in containers. One component of your system creates new containers and stores an encrypted data key with each container. Then, a different component puts the data into the containers. That component first decrypts the data key, uses the plaintext data key to encrypt data, puts the encrypted data into the container, and then destroys the plaintext data key. In this system, the component that creates the containers never sees the plaintext data key.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

get_waiter(waiter_name)

Returns an object that can wait for some condition.

Return type
botocore.waiter.Waiter
import_key_material(**kwargs)

Imports key material into an existing AWS KMS customer master key (CMK) that was created without key material. You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account. For more information about creating CMKs with no key material and then importing key material, see Importing Key Material in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Before using this operation, call GetParametersForImport . Its response includes a public key and an import token. Use the public key to encrypt the key material. Then, submit the import token from the same GetParametersForImport response.

When calling this operation, you must specify the following values:

  • The key ID or key ARN of a CMK with no key material. Its Origin must be EXTERNAL . To create a CMK with no key material, call CreateKey and set the value of its Origin parameter to EXTERNAL . To get the Origin of a CMK, call DescribeKey .)
  • The encrypted key material. To get the public key to encrypt the key material, call GetParametersForImport .
  • The import token that GetParametersForImport returned. This token and the public key used to encrypt the key material must have come from the same response.
  • Whether the key material expires and if so, when. If you set an expiration date, you can change it only by reimporting the same key material and specifying a new expiration date. If the key material expires, AWS KMS deletes the key material and the CMK becomes unusable. To use the CMK again, you must reimport the same key material.

When this operation is successful, the key state of the CMK changes from PendingImport to Enabled , and you can use the CMK. After you successfully import key material into a CMK, you can reimport the same key material into that CMK, but you cannot import different key material.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

  • ImportToken (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The import token that you received in the response to a previous GetParametersForImport request. It must be from the same response that contained the public key that you used to encrypt the key material.

  • EncryptedKeyMaterial (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The encrypted key material to import. It must be encrypted with the public key that you received in the response to a previous GetParametersForImport request, using the wrapping algorithm that you specified in that request.

  • ValidTo (datetime) -- The time at which the imported key material expires. When the key material expires, AWS KMS deletes the key material and the CMK becomes unusable. You must omit this parameter when the ExpirationModel parameter is set to KEY_MATERIAL_DOES_NOT_EXPIRE . Otherwise it is required.
  • ExpirationModel (string) -- Specifies whether the key material expires. The default is KEY_MATERIAL_EXPIRES , in which case you must include the ValidTo parameter. When this parameter is set to KEY_MATERIAL_DOES_NOT_EXPIRE , you must omit the ValidTo parameter.

list_aliases(**kwargs)

Gets a list of aliases in the caller's AWS account and region. You cannot list aliases in other accounts. For more information about aliases, see CreateAlias .

By default, the ListAliases command returns all aliases in the account and region. To get only the aliases that point to a particular customer master key (CMK), use the KeyId parameter.

The ListAliases response can include aliases that you created and associated with your customer managed CMKs, and aliases that AWS created and associated with AWS managed CMKs in your account. You can recognize AWS aliases because their names have the format aws/<service-name> , such as aws/dynamodb .

The response might also include aliases that have no TargetKeyId field. These are predefined aliases that AWS has created but has not yet associated with a CMK. Aliases that AWS creates in your account, including predefined aliases, do not count against your AWS KMS aliases limit .

Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    Lists only aliases that refer to the specified CMK. The value of this parameter can be the ID or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a CMK in the caller's account and region. You cannot use an alias name or alias ARN in this value.

    This parameter is optional. If you omit it, ListAliases returns all aliases in the account and region.

  • Limit (integer) --

    Use this parameter to specify the maximum number of items to return. When this value is present, AWS KMS does not return more than the specified number of items, but it might return fewer.

    This value is optional. If you include a value, it must be between 1 and 100, inclusive. If you do not include a value, it defaults to 50.

  • Marker (string) -- Use this parameter in a subsequent request after you receive a response with truncated results. Set it to the value of NextMarker from the truncated response you just received.

Request Syntax

response = client.list_key_policies(
    KeyId='string',
    Limit=123,
    Marker='string'
)
Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK).

    Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

  • Limit (integer) --

    Use this parameter to specify the maximum number of items to return. When this value is present, AWS KMS does not return more than the specified number of items, but it might return fewer.

    This value is optional. If you include a value, it must be between 1 and 1000, inclusive. If you do not include a value, it defaults to 100.

    Only one policy can be attached to a key.

  • Marker (string) -- Use this parameter in a subsequent request after you receive a response with truncated results. Set it to the value of NextMarker from the truncated response you just received.

put_key_policy(**kwargs)

Attaches a key policy to the specified customer master key (CMK). You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

For more information about key policies, see Key Policies in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.put_key_policy(
    KeyId='string',
    PolicyName='string',
    Policy='string',
    BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck=True|False
)
Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK).

    Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

  • PolicyName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the key policy. The only valid value is default .

  • Policy (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The key policy to attach to the CMK.

    The key policy must meet the following criteria:

    • If you don't set BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck to true, the key policy must allow the principal that is making the PutKeyPolicy request to make a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK. This reduces the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section of the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .
    • Each statement in the key policy must contain one or more principals. The principals in the key policy must exist and be visible to AWS KMS. When you create a new AWS principal (for example, an IAM user or role), you might need to enforce a delay before including the new principal in a key policy because the new principal might not be immediately visible to AWS KMS. For more information, see Changes that I make are not always immediately visible in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide .

    The key policy size limit is 32 kilobytes (32768 bytes).

  • BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck (boolean) --

    A flag to indicate whether to bypass the key policy lockout safety check.

    Warning

    Setting this value to true increases the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. Do not set this value to true indiscriminately.

    For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    Use this parameter only when you intend to prevent the principal that is making the request from making a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK.

    The default value is false.

Returns

None

Examples

The following example attaches a key policy to the specified CMK.

response = client.put_key_policy(
    # The identifier of the CMK to attach the key policy to. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

re_encrypt(**kwargs)

Encrypts data on the server side with a new customer master key (CMK) without exposing the plaintext of the data on the client side. The data is first decrypted and then reencrypted. You can also use this operation to change the encryption context of a ciphertext.

You can reencrypt data using CMKs in different AWS accounts.

Unlike other operations, ReEncrypt is authorized twice, once as ReEncryptFrom on the source CMK and once as ReEncryptTo on the destination CMK. We recommend that you include the "kms:ReEncrypt*" permission in your key policies to permit reencryption from or to the CMK. This permission is automatically included in the key policy when you create a CMK through the console. But you must include it manually when you create a CMK programmatically or when you set a key policy with the PutKeyPolicy operation.

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

retire_grant(**kwargs)

Retires a grant. To clean up, you can retire a grant when you're done using it. You should revoke a grant when you intend to actively deny operations that depend on it. The following are permitted to call this API:

  • The AWS account (root user) under which the grant was created
  • The RetiringPrincipal , if present in the grant
  • The GranteePrincipal , if RetireGrant is an operation specified in the grant

You must identify the grant to retire by its grant token or by a combination of the grant ID and the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the customer master key (CMK). A grant token is a unique variable-length base64-encoded string. A grant ID is a 64 character unique identifier of a grant. The CreateGrant operation returns both.

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for the customer master key associated with the grant.

    Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK. To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

  • GrantId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifier of the grant to be revoked.

Returns

None

Examples

        '...': '...',
    },
}
schedule_key_deletion(**kwargs)

Schedules the deletion of a customer master key (CMK). You may provide a waiting period, specified in days, before deletion occurs. If you do not provide a waiting period, the default period of 30 days is used. When this operation is successful, the key state of the CMK changes to PendingDeletion . Before the waiting period ends, you can use CancelKeyDeletion to cancel the deletion of the CMK. After the waiting period ends, AWS KMS deletes the CMK and all AWS KMS data associated with it, including all aliases that refer to it.

Warning

Deleting a CMK is a destructive and potentially dangerous operation. When a CMK is deleted, all data that was encrypted under the CMK is unrecoverable. To prevent the use of a CMK without deleting it, use DisableKey .

If you schedule deletion of a CMK from a custom key store , when the waiting period expires, ScheduleKeyDeletion deletes the CMK from AWS KMS. Then AWS KMS makes a best effort to delete the key material from the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. However, you might need to manually delete the orphaned key material from the cluster and its backups.

You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

For more information about scheduling a CMK for deletion, see Deleting Customer Master Keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

update_alias(**kwargs)

Associates an existing alias with a different customer master key (CMK). Each CMK can have multiple aliases, but the aliases must be unique within the account and region. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.

This operation works only on existing aliases. To change the alias of a CMK to a new value, use CreateAlias to create a new alias and DeleteAlias to delete the old alias.

Because an alias is not a property of a CMK, you can create, update, and delete the aliases of a CMK without affecting the CMK. Also, aliases do not appear in the response from the DescribeKey operation. To get the aliases of all CMKs in the account, use the ListAliases operation.

The alias name must begin with alias/ followed by a name, such as alias/ExampleAlias . It can contain only alphanumeric characters, forward slashes (/), underscores (_), and dashes (-). The alias name cannot begin with alias/aws/ . The alias/aws/ prefix is reserved for AWS managed CMKs .

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.update_alias(
    AliasName='string',
    TargetKeyId='string'
)
Parameters
  • AliasName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the name of the alias to change. This value must begin with alias/ followed by the alias name, such as alias/ExampleAlias .

  • TargetKeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Unique identifier of the customer master key (CMK) to be mapped to the alias. When the update operation completes, the alias will point to this CMK.

    Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

    To verify that the alias is mapped to the correct CMK, use ListAliases .

Returns

None

Examples

The following example updates the specified alias to refer to the specified customer master key (CMK).

response = client.update_alias(
    # The alias to update.
    AliasName='alias/ExampleAlias',
    # The identifier of the CMK that the alias will refer to after this operation succeeds. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
    TargetKeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
update_custom_key_store(**kwargs)

Changes the properties of a custom key store. Use the CustomKeyStoreId parameter to identify the custom key store you want to edit. Use the remaining parameters to change the properties of the custom key store.

You can only update a custom key store that is disconnected. To disconnect the custom key store, use DisconnectCustomKeyStore . To reconnect the custom key store after the update completes, use ConnectCustomKeyStore . To find the connection state of a custom key store, use the DescribeCustomKeyStores operation.

Use the parameters of UpdateCustomKeyStore to edit your keystore settings.

  • Use the NewCustomKeyStoreName parameter to change the friendly name of the custom key store to the value that you specify.
  • Use the KeyStorePassword parameter tell AWS KMS the current password of the ` kmsuser crypto user (CU) <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/key-store-concepts.html#concept-kmsuser>`__ in the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. You can use this parameter to fix connection failures that occur when AWS KMS cannot log into the associated cluster because the kmsuser password has changed. This value does not change the password in the AWS CloudHSM cluster.
  • Use the CloudHsmClusterId parameter to associate the custom key store with a different, but related, AWS CloudHSM cluster. You can use this parameter to repair a custom key store if its AWS CloudHSM cluster becomes corrupted or is deleted, or when you need to create or restore a cluster from a backup.

If the operation succeeds, it returns a JSON object with no properties.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

  • KeyStorePassword (string) --

    Enter the current password of the kmsuser crypto user (CU) in the AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store.

    This parameter tells AWS KMS the current password of the kmsuser crypto user (CU). It does not set or change the password of any users in the AWS CloudHSM cluster.

  • CloudHsmClusterId (string) --

    Associates the custom key store with a related AWS CloudHSM cluster.

    Enter the cluster ID of the cluster that you used to create the custom key store or a cluster that shares a backup history and has the same cluster certificate as the original cluster. You cannot use this parameter to associate a custom key store with an unrelated cluster. In addition, the replacement cluster must fulfill the requirements for a cluster associated with a custom key store. To view the cluster certificate of a cluster, use the DescribeClusters operation.
