KMS

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 succeeds, the key state of the CMK is Disabled . To enable the 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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 Amazon Resource Name (key ARN ) of the CMK whose deletion is canceled.

Exceptions

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. Also, the ` kmsuser crypto user <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/key-store-concepts.html#concept-kmsuser>`__ (CU) must not be logged into the cluster. This prevents AWS KMS from using this account to log in.

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 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 .

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.

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 cryptographic operations , such as Encrypt and GenerateDataKey . You can change the CMK associated with the alias at any time.

Aliases are easier to remember than key IDs. They can also help to simplify your applications. For example, if you use an alias in your code, you can change the CMK your code uses by associating a given alias with a different CMK.

To run the same code in multiple AWS regions, use an alias in your code, such as alias/ApplicationKey . Then, in each AWS Region, create an alias/ApplicationKey alias that is associated with a CMK in that Region. When you run your code, it uses the alias/ApplicationKey CMK for that AWS Region without any Region-specific code.

This operation does not return a response. To get the alias that you created, use the ListAliases operation.

To use aliases successfully, be aware of the following information.

  • Each alias points to only one CMK at a time, although a single CMK can have multiple aliases. The alias and its associated CMK must be in the same AWS account and Region.
  • You can associate an alias with any customer managed CMK in the same AWS account and Region. However, you do not have permission to associate an alias with an AWS managed CMK or an AWS owned CMK .
  • To change the CMK associated with an alias, use the UpdateAlias operation. The current CMK and the new CMK must be the same type (both symmetric or both asymmetric) and they must have the same key usage (ENCRYPT_DECRYPT or SIGN_VERIFY ). This restriction prevents cryptographic errors in code that uses aliases.
  • 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 name must be unique within an AWS Region. However, you can use the same alias name in multiple Regions of the same AWS account. Each instance of the alias is associated with a CMK in its Region.
  • After you create an alias, you cannot change its alias name. However, you can use the DeleteAlias operation to delete the alias and then create a new alias with the desired name.
  • You can use an alias name or alias ARN to identify a CMK in AWS KMS cryptographic operations and in the DescribeKey operation. However, you cannot use alias names or alias ARNs in API operations that manage CMKs, such as DisableKey or GetKeyPolicy . For information about the valid CMK identifiers for each AWS KMS API operation, see the descriptions of the KeyId parameter in the API operation documentation.

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 and alias ARNs of CMKs in each AWS account and Region, use the ListAliases operation.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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

Exceptions

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 .

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 request includes a particular encryption context , use the Constraints parameter. For details, see GrantConstraints .

You can create grants on symmetric and asymmetric CMKs. However, if the grant allows an operation that the CMK does not support, CreateGrant fails with a ValidationException .

  • Grants for symmetric CMKs cannot allow operations that are not supported for symmetric CMKs, including Sign , Verify , and GetPublicKey . (There are limited exceptions to this rule for legacy operations, but you should not create a grant for an operation that AWS KMS does not support.)
  • Grants for asymmetric CMKs cannot allow operations that are not supported for asymmetric CMKs, including operations that generate data keys or data key pairs , or operations related to automatic key rotation , imported key material , or CMKs in custom key stores .
  • Grants for asymmetric CMKs with a KeyUsage of ENCRYPT_DECRYPT cannot allow the Sign or Verify operations. Grants for asymmetric CMKs with a KeyUsage of SIGN_VERIFY cannot allow the Encrypt or Decrypt operations.
  • Grants for asymmetric CMKs cannot include an encryption context grant constraint. An encryption context is not supported on asymmetric CMKs.

For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

        • (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 unique customer managed customer master key (CMK) in your AWS account and Region. You cannot use this operation to create a CMK in a different AWS account.

You can use the CreateKey operation to create symmetric or asymmetric CMKs.

  • Symmetric CMKs contain a 256-bit symmetric key that never leaves AWS KMS unencrypted. To use the CMK, you must call AWS KMS. You can use a symmetric CMK to encrypt and decrypt small amounts of data, but they are typically used to generate data keys and data keys pairs . For details, see GenerateDataKey and GenerateDataKeyPair .
  • Asymmetric CMKs can contain an RSA key pair or an Elliptic Curve (ECC) key pair. The private key in an asymmetric CMK never leaves AWS KMS unencrypted. However, you can use the GetPublicKey operation to download the public key so it can be used outside of AWS KMS. CMKs with RSA key pairs can be used to encrypt or decrypt data or sign and verify messages (but not both). CMKs with ECC key pairs can be used only to sign and verify messages.

For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

To create different types of CMKs, use the following guidance:

Asymmetric CMKs

To create an asymmetric CMK, use the CustomerMasterKeySpec parameter to specify the type of key material in the CMK. Then, use the KeyUsage parameter to determine whether the CMK will be used to encrypt and decrypt or sign and verify. You can't change these properties after the CMK is created.

Symmetric CMKs

When creating a symmetric CMK, you don't need to specify the CustomerMasterKeySpec or KeyUsage parameters. The default value for CustomerMasterKeySpec , SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , and the default value for KeyUsage , ENCRYPT_DECRYPT , are the only valid values for symmetric CMKs.

Imported Key Material

To import your own key material, begin by creating a symmetric CMK with no key material. To do this, use the Origin parameter of CreateKey with a value of EXTERNAL . Next, use GetParametersForImport operation to get a public key and import token, and use the public key to encrypt your key material. Then, use ImportKeyMaterial with your import token to import the key material. For step-by-step instructions, see Importing Key Material in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * . You cannot import the key material into an asymmetric CMK.

Custom Key Stores

To create a symmetric 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 create an asymmetric CMK in a custom key store. For information about custom key stores in AWS KMS see Using Custom Key Stores in the * AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide * .

        },
    ]
)
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 quota 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) --

    Determines the cryptographic operations for which you can use the CMK. The default value is ENCRYPT_DECRYPT . This parameter is required only for asymmetric CMKs. You can't change the KeyUsage value after the CMK is created.

    Select only one valid value.

    • For symmetric CMKs, omit the parameter or specify ENCRYPT_DECRYPT .
    • For asymmetric CMKs with RSA key material, specify ENCRYPT_DECRYPT or SIGN_VERIFY .
    • For asymmetric CMKs with ECC key material, specify SIGN_VERIFY .
  • CustomerMasterKeySpec (string) --

    Specifies the type of CMK to create. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , creates a CMK with a 256-bit symmetric key for encryption and decryption. For help choosing a key spec for your CMK, see How to Choose Your CMK Configuration in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    The CustomerMasterKeySpec determines whether the CMK contains a symmetric key or an asymmetric key pair. It also determines the encryption algorithms or signing algorithms that the CMK supports. You can't change the CustomerMasterKeySpec after the CMK is created. To further restrict the algorithms that can be used with the CMK, use a condition key in its key policy or IAM policy. For more information, see kms:EncryptionAlgorithm or kms:Signing Algorithm in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    Warning

    AWS services that are integrated with AWS KMS use symmetric CMKs to protect your data. These services do not support asymmetric CMKs. For help determining whether a CMK is symmetric or asymmetric, see Identifying Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    AWS KMS supports the following key specs for CMKs:

    • Symmetric key (default)
      • SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT (AES-256-GCM)
    • Asymmetric RSA key pairs
      • RSA_2048
      • RSA_3072
      • RSA_4096
    • Asymmetric NIST-recommended elliptic curve key pairs
      • ECC_NIST_P256 (secp256r1)
      • ECC_NIST_P384 (secp384r1)
      • ECC_NIST_P521 (secp521r1)
    • Other asymmetric elliptic curve key pairs
      • ECC_SECG_P256K1 (secp256k1), commonly used for cryptocurrencies.
  • 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.

    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 . This value is valid only for symmetric CMKs.

    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. This value is valid only for symmetric CMKs.

  • 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.

    This parameter is valid only for symmetric CMKs. You cannot create an asymmetric CMK in a custom key store.

    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. Both the tag key and the tag value are required, but the tag value can be an empty (null) string.

    When you add tags to an AWS resource, AWS generates a cost allocation report with usage and costs aggregated by tags. For information about adding, changing, deleting and listing tags for CMKs, see Tagging Keys .

    Use this parameter to tag the CMK when it is created. To add tags to an existing CMK, use the TagResource operation.

    • (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 that was encrypted by a AWS KMS customer master key (CMK) using any of the following operations:

  • Encrypt
  • GenerateDataKey
  • GenerateDataKeyPair
  • GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext
  • GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext

You can use this operation to decrypt ciphertext that was encrypted under a symmetric or asymmetric CMK. When the CMK is asymmetric, you must specify the CMK and the encryption algorithm that was used to encrypt the ciphertext. For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

The Decrypt operation also decrypts ciphertext that was encrypted outside of AWS KMS by the public key in an AWS KMS asymmetric CMK. However, it cannot decrypt ciphertext produced by other libraries, such as the AWS Encryption SDK or Amazon S3 client-side encryption . These libraries return a ciphertext format that is incompatible with AWS KMS.

If the ciphertext was encrypted under a symmetric CMK, you do not need to specify the CMK or the encryption algorithm. AWS KMS can get this information from metadata that it adds to the symmetric ciphertext blob. However, if you prefer, you can specify the KeyId to ensure that a particular CMK is used to decrypt the ciphertext. If you specify a different CMK than the one used to encrypt the ciphertext, the Decrypt operation fails.

Whenever possible, use key policies to give users permission to call the Decrypt operation on a particular CMK, instead of using 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    ],
    KeyId='string',
    EncryptionAlgorithm='SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT'|'RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1'|'RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256'
)
Parameters
  • CiphertextBlob (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Ciphertext to be decrypted. The blob includes metadata.

  • EncryptionContext (dict) --

    Specifies the encryption context to use when decrypting the data. An encryption context is valid only for cryptographic operations with a symmetric CMK. The standard asymmetric encryption algorithms that AWS KMS uses do not support an encryption context.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represents additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is optional when encrypting with a symmetric CMK, but it is highly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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

    A list of grant tokens.

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

    • (string) --
  • KeyId (string) --

    Specifies the customer master key (CMK) that AWS KMS will use to decrypt the ciphertext. Enter a key ID of the CMK that was used to encrypt the ciphertext.

    If you specify a KeyId value, the Decrypt operation succeeds only if the specified CMK was used to encrypt the ciphertext.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric CMK. Otherwise, AWS KMS uses the metadata that it adds to the ciphertext blob to determine which CMK was used to encrypt the ciphertext. However, you can use this parameter to ensure that a particular CMK (of any kind) is used to decrypt the ciphertext.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" .

    For example:

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

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

  • EncryptionAlgorithm (string) --

    Specifies the encryption algorithm that will be used to decrypt the ciphertext. Specify the same algorithm that was used to encrypt the data. If you specify a different algorithm, the Decrypt operation fails.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric CMK. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , represents the only supported algorithm that is valid for symmetric CMKs.

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 .

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',

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.

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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. 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 .

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 .

        • CustomKeyStoreId (string) --

          A unique identifier for the custom key store.

        • CustomKeyStoreName (string) --

          The user-specified friendly name for the custom key store.

        • CloudHsmClusterId (string) --

          A unique identifier for the AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store.

        • TrustAnchorCertificate (string) --

          The trust anchor certificate of the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. When you initialize the cluster , you create this certificate and save it in the customerCA.crt file.

        • ConnectionState (string) --

          Indicates whether the custom key store is connected to its AWS CloudHSM cluster.

          You can create and use CMKs in your custom key stores only when its connection state is CONNECTED .

          The value is DISCONNECTED if the key store has never been connected or you use the DisconnectCustomKeyStore operation to disconnect it. If the value is CONNECTED but you are having trouble using the custom key store, make sure that its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster is active and contains at least one active HSM.

          A value of FAILED indicates that an attempt to connect was unsuccessful. The ConnectionErrorCode field in the response indicates the cause of the failure. For help resolving a connection failure, see Troubleshooting a Custom Key Store in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

        • ConnectionErrorCode (string) --

          Describes the connection error. This field appears in the response only when the ConnectionState is FAILED . For help resolving these errors, see How to Fix a Connection Failure in AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

          Valid values are:

          • CLUSTER_NOT_FOUND - AWS KMS cannot find the AWS CloudHSM cluster with the specified cluster ID.
          • INSUFFICIENT_CLOUDHSM_HSMS - The associated AWS CloudHSM cluster does not contain any active HSMs. To connect a custom key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, the cluster must contain at least one active HSM.
          • INTERNAL_ERROR - AWS KMS could not complete the request due to an internal error. Retry the request. For ConnectCustomKeyStore requests, disconnect the custom key store before trying to connect again.
          • INVALID_CREDENTIALS - AWS KMS does not have the correct password for the kmsuser crypto user in the AWS CloudHSM cluster. Before you can connect your custom key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, you must change the kmsuser account password and update the key store password value for the custom key store.
          • NETWORK_ERRORS - Network errors are preventing AWS KMS from connecting to the custom key store.
          • SUBNET_NOT_FOUND - A subnet in the AWS CloudHSM cluster configuration was deleted. If AWS KMS cannot find all of the subnets in the cluster configuration, attempts to connect the custom key store to the AWS CloudHSM cluster fail. To fix this error, create a cluster from a recent backup and associate it with your custom key store. (This process creates a new cluster configuration with a VPC and private subnets.) For details, see How to Fix a Connection Failure in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .
          • USER_LOCKED_OUT - The kmsuser CU account is locked out of the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster due to too many failed password attempts. Before you can connect your custom key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, you must change the kmsuser account password and update the key store password value for the custom key store.
          • USER_LOGGED_IN - The kmsuser CU account is logged into the the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. This prevents AWS KMS from rotating the kmsuser account password and logging into the cluster. Before you can connect your custom key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, you must log the kmsuser CU out of the cluster. If you changed the kmsuser password to log into the cluster, you must also and update the key store password value for the custom key store. For help, see How to Log Out and Reconnect in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .
          • USER_NOT_FOUND - AWS KMS cannot find a kmsuser CU account in the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. Before you can connect your custom key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, you must create a kmsuser CU account in the cluster, and then update the key store password value for the custom key store.
        • CreationDate (datetime) --

          The date and time when the custom key store was created.

    • NextMarker (string) --

      When Truncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

    • Truncated (boolean) --

      A flag that indicates whether there are more items in the list. When this value is true, the list in this response is truncated. To get more items, pass the value of the NextMarker element in thisresponse to the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

Exceptions

describe_key(**kwargs)

Provides detailed information about a customer master key (CMK). You can run DescribeKey on a customer managed CMK or an AWS managed CMK .

This detailed information includes the key ARN, creation date (and deletion date, if applicable), the key state, and the origin and expiration date (if any) of the key material. For CMKs in custom key stores, it includes information about the custom key store, such as the key store ID and the AWS CloudHSM cluster ID. It includes fields, like KeySpec , that help you distinguish symmetric from asymmetric CMKs. It also provides information that is particularly important to asymmetric CMKs, such as the key usage (encryption or signing) and the encryption algorithms or signing algorithms that the CMK supports.

DescribeKey does not return the following information:
  • Aliases associated with the CMK. To get this information, use ListAliases .
  • Whether automatic key rotation is enabled on the CMK. To get this information, use GetKeyRotationStatus . Also, some key states prevent a CMK from being automatically rotated. For details, see How Automatic Key Rotation Works in AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .
  • Tags on the CMK. To get this information, use ListResourceTags .
  • Key policies and grants on the CMK. To get this information, use GetKeyPolicy and ListGrants .

If you call the DescribeKey operation on a predefined AWS alias , that is, an AWS alias with no key ID, AWS KMS creates an AWS managed CMK . Then, it associates the alias with the new CMK, and returns the KeyId and Arn of the new CMK in the response.

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.

Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Describes the specified customer master key (CMK).

    If you specify a predefined AWS alias (an AWS alias with no key ID), KMS associates the alias with an AWS managed CMK and returns its KeyId and Arn in the response.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias 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
    • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias
    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

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

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 small amounts of arbitrary data, such as a personal identifier or database password, or other sensitive information.
  • You can use the Encrypt operation to move encrypted data from one AWS Region to another. For example, in Region A, generate a data key and use the plaintext key to encrypt your data. Then, in Region A, use the Encrypt operation to encrypt the plaintext data key under a CMK in Region B. Now, you can move the encrypted data and the encrypted data key to Region B. When necessary, you can decrypt the encrypted data key and the encrypted data entirely within in Region B.

You don't need to use the Encrypt operation to encrypt a data key. The GenerateDataKey and GenerateDataKeyPair operations return a plaintext data key and an encrypted copy of that data key.

When you encrypt data, you must specify a symmetric or asymmetric CMK to use in the encryption operation. The CMK must have a KeyUsage value of ENCRYPT_DECRYPT. To find the KeyUsage of a CMK, use the DescribeKey operation.

If you use a symmetric CMK, you can use an encryption context to add additional security to your encryption operation. If you specify an EncryptionContext when encrypting data, you must specify the same encryption context (a case-sensitive exact match) when decrypting the data. Otherwise, the request to decrypt fails with an InvalidCiphertextException . For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

If you specify an asymmetric CMK, you must also specify the encryption algorithm. The algorithm must be compatible with the CMK type.

Warning

When you use an asymmetric CMK to encrypt or reencrypt data, be sure to record the CMK and encryption algorithm that you choose. You will be required to provide the same CMK and encryption algorithm when you decrypt the data. If the CMK and algorithm do not match the values used to encrypt the data, the decrypt operation fails.

You are not required to supply the CMK ID and encryption algorithm when you decrypt with symmetric CMKs because AWS KMS stores this information in the ciphertext blob. AWS KMS cannot store metadata in ciphertext generated with asymmetric keys. The standard format for asymmetric key ciphertext does not include configurable fields.

The maximum size of the data that you can encrypt varies with the type of CMK and the encryption algorithm that you choose.

  • Symmetric CMKs
    • SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT : 4096 bytes
  • RSA_2048
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1 : 214 bytes
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256 : 190 bytes
  • RSA_3072
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1 : 342 bytes
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256 : 318 bytes
  • RSA_4096
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1 : 470 bytes
    • RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256 : 446 bytes

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. 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.

  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

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

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias ARN.

    For example:

    • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias
    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

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

  • Plaintext (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Data to be encrypted.

  • EncryptionContext (dict) --

    Specifies the encryption context that will be used to encrypt the data. An encryption context is valid only for cryptographic operations with a symmetric CMK. The standard asymmetric encryption algorithms that AWS KMS uses do not support an encryption context.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represents additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is optional when encrypting with a symmetric CMK, but it is highly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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

    A list of grant tokens.

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

    • (string) --
  • EncryptionAlgorithm (string) --

    Specifies the encryption algorithm that AWS KMS will use to encrypt the plaintext message. The algorithm must be compatible with the CMK that you specify.

    This parameter is required only for asymmetric CMKs. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , is the algorithm used for symmetric CMKs. If you are using an asymmetric CMK, we recommend RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256.

generate_data_key(**kwargs)

Generates a unique symmetric data key for client-side encryption. 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 AWS KMS and store the encrypted data key with the encrypted data.

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

To generate a data key, specify the symmetric CMK that will be used to encrypt the data key. You cannot use an asymmetric CMK to generate data keys. To get the type of your CMK, use the DescribeKey operation. You must also specify the length of the data key. Use either the KeySpec or NumberOfBytes parameters (but not both). For 128-bit and 256-bit data keys, use the KeySpec parameter.

To get only an encrypted copy of the data key, use GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext . To generate an asymmetric data key pair, use the GenerateDataKeyPair or GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext operation. To get a cryptographically secure random byte string, use GenerateRandom .

You can use the optional encryption context to add additional security to the encryption operation. If you specify an EncryptionContext , you must specify the same encryption context (a case-sensitive exact match) when decrypting the encrypted 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

How to use your data key

We recommend that you use the following pattern to encrypt data locally in your application. You can write your own code or use a client-side encryption library, such as the AWS Encryption SDK , the Amazon DynamoDB Encryption Client , or Amazon S3 client-side encryption to do these tasks for you.

To encrypt data outside of AWS KMS:

  • Use the GenerateDataKey operation to get a data key.
  • Use the plaintext data key (in the Plaintext field of the response) to encrypt your data outside of AWS KMS. Then erase the plaintext data key from memory.
  • Store the encrypted data key (in the CiphertextBlob field of the response) with the encrypted data.

To decrypt data outside of AWS KMS:

  • 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 outside of AWS KMS, then erase the plaintext data key from memory.

    ]
)
Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifies the symmetric CMK that encrypts the data key.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias 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
    • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias
    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

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

  • EncryptionContext (dict) --

    Specifies the encryption context that will be used when encrypting the data key.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represents additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is optional when encrypting with a symmetric CMK, but it is highly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • NumberOfBytes (integer) --

    Specifies the length of the data key in bytes. For example, use the value 64 to generate a 512-bit data key (64 bytes is 512 bits). For 128-bit (16-byte) and 256-bit (32-byte) data keys, use the KeySpec parameter.

    You must specify either the KeySpec or the NumberOfBytes parameter (but not both) in every GenerateDataKey request.

  • KeySpec (string) --

    Specifies the length of the data key. Use AES_128 to generate a 128-bit symmetric key, or AES_256 to generate a 256-bit symmetric key.

    You must specify either the KeySpec or the NumberOfBytes parameter (but not both) in every GenerateDataKey request.

  • GrantTokens (list) --

    A list of grant tokens.

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

    • 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 Base64-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 Base64-encoded. Use this data key to encrypt your data outside of KMS. Then, remove it from memory as soon as possible.

    • KeyId (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (key ARN ) of the CMK that encrypted the data key.

Exceptions

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:

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

Generates a unique asymmetric data key pair. The GenerateDataKeyPair operation returns a plaintext public key, a plaintext private key, and a copy of the private key that is encrypted under the symmetric CMK you specify. You can use the data key pair to perform asymmetric cryptography outside of AWS KMS.

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

You can use the public key that GenerateDataKeyPair returns to encrypt data or verify a signature outside of AWS KMS. Then, store the encrypted private key with the data. When you are ready to decrypt data or sign a message, you can use the Decrypt operation to decrypt the encrypted private key.

To generate a data key pair, you must specify a symmetric customer master key (CMK) to encrypt the private key in a data key pair. You cannot use an asymmetric CMK or a CMK in a custom key store. To get the type and origin of your CMK, use the DescribeKey operation.

If you are using the data key pair to encrypt data, or for any operation where you don't immediately need a private key, consider using the GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext operation. GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext returns a plaintext public key and an encrypted private key, but omits the plaintext private key that you need only to decrypt ciphertext or sign a message. Later, when you need to decrypt the data or sign a message, use the Decrypt operation to decrypt the encrypted private key in the data key pair.

You can use the optional encryption context to add additional security to the encryption operation. If you specify an EncryptionContext , you must specify the same encryption context (a case-sensitive exact match) when decrypting the encrypted 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Exceptions

generate_data_key_without_plaintext(**kwargs)

Generates a unique symmetric data key. This operation returns a data key that is encrypted under a customer master key (CMK) that you specify. To request an asymmetric data key pair, use the GenerateDataKeyPair or GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext operations.

GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext is identical to the GenerateDataKey operation except that returns only the encrypted copy of 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.

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

To generate a data key, you must specify the symmetric customer master key (CMK) that is used to encrypt the data key. You cannot use an asymmetric CMK to generate a data key. To get the type of your CMK, use the DescribeKey operation.

If the operation succeeds, you will find the encrypted copy of the data key in the CiphertextBlob field.

You can use the optional encryption context to add additional security to the encryption operation. If you specify an EncryptionContext , you must specify the same encryption context (a case-sensitive exact match) when decrypting the encrypted 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

get_key_rotation_status(**kwargs)

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether automatic rotation of the key material is enabled for the specified customer master key (CMK).

You cannot enable automatic rotation of asymmetric CMKs, CMKs with imported key material, or CMKs in a custom key store . The key rotation status for these CMKs is always false .

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

  • Disabled: The key rotation status does not change when you disable a CMK. However, while the CMK is disabled, AWS KMS does not rotate the backing key.
  • Pending deletion: While a CMK is pending deletion, its key rotation status is false and AWS KMS does not rotate the backing key. If you cancel the deletion, the original key rotation status is restored.

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

get_paginator(operation_name)

Create a paginator for an operation.

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").
Raises OperationNotPageableError
Raised if the operation is not pageable. You can use the client.can_paginate method to check if an operation is pageable.
Return type
L{botocore.paginate.Paginator}
Returns
A paginator object.
get_parameters_for_import(**kwargs)

Returns the items you need to import key material into a symmetric, customer managed customer master key (CMK). For more information about importing key material into AWS KMS, see Importing Key Material in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

This operation returns a public key and an import token. Use the public key to encrypt the symmetric key material. Store the import token to send with a subsequent ImportKeyMaterial request.

You must specify the key ID of the symmetric CMK into which you will import key material. This CMK's Origin must be EXTERNAL . You must also specify the wrapping algorithm and type of wrapping key (public key) that you will use to encrypt the key material. You cannot perform this operation on an asymmetric CMK or on any CMK in a different AWS account.

To import key material, you must use the public key and import token from the same response. These items are valid for 24 hours. The expiration date and time appear in the GetParametersForImport response. You cannot use an expired token in an ImportKeyMaterial request. If your key and token expire, send another GetParametersForImport request.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

get_public_key(**kwargs)

Returns the public key of an asymmetric CMK. Unlike the private key of a asymmetric CMK, which never leaves AWS KMS unencrypted, callers with kms:GetPublicKey permission can download the public key of an asymmetric CMK. You can share the public key to allow others to encrypt messages and verify signatures outside of AWS KMS. For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

You do not need to download the public key. Instead, you can use the public key within AWS KMS by calling the Encrypt , ReEncrypt , or Verify operations with the identifier of an asymmetric CMK. When you use the public key within AWS KMS, you benefit from the authentication, authorization, and logging that are part of every AWS KMS operation. You also reduce of risk of encrypting data that cannot be decrypted. These features are not effective outside of AWS KMS. For details, see Special Considerations for Downloading Public Keys .

To help you use the public key safely outside of AWS KMS, GetPublicKey returns important information about the public key in the response, including:

Although AWS KMS cannot enforce these restrictions on external operations, it is crucial that you use this information to prevent the public key from being used improperly. For example, you can prevent a public signing key from being used encrypt data, or prevent a public key from being used with an encryption algorithm that is not supported by AWS KMS. You can also avoid errors, such as using the wrong signing algorithm in a verification operation.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifies the asymmetric CMK that includes the public key.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias ARN.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • KeyId (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (key ARN ) of the asymmetric CMK from which the public key was downloaded.

    • PublicKey (bytes) --

      The exported public key.

      The value is a DER-encoded X.509 public key, also known as SubjectPublicKeyInfo (SPKI), as defined in RFC 5280 . When you use the HTTP API or the AWS CLI, the value is Base64-encoded. Otherwise, it is not Base64-encoded.

    • CustomerMasterKeySpec (string) --

      The type of the of the public key that was downloaded.

    • KeyUsage (string) --

      The permitted use of the public key. Valid values are ENCRYPT_DECRYPT or SIGN_VERIFY .

      This information is critical. If a public key with SIGN_VERIFY key usage encrypts data outside of AWS KMS, the ciphertext cannot be decrypted.

    • EncryptionAlgorithms (list) --

      The encryption algorithms that AWS KMS supports for this key.

      This information is critical. If a public key encrypts data outside of AWS KMS by using an unsupported encryption algorithm, the ciphertext cannot be decrypted.

      This field appears in the response only when the KeyUsage of the public key is ENCRYPT_DECRYPT .

      • (string) --
    • SigningAlgorithms (list) --

      The signing algorithms that AWS KMS supports for this key.

      This field appears in the response only when the KeyUsage of the public key is SIGN_VERIFY .

Exceptions

get_waiter(waiter_name)

Returns an object that can wait for some condition.

Parameters
waiter_name (str) -- The name of the waiter to get. See the waiters section of the service docs for a list of available waiters.
Returns
The specified waiter object.
Return type
botocore.waiter.Waiter
import_key_material(**kwargs)

Imports key material into an existing symmetric AWS KMS customer master key (CMK) that was created without key material. 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.

You cannot perform this operation on an asymmetric CMK or on any 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. You must use a public key and token from the same GetParametersForImport response.
  • Whether the key material expires and if so, when. If you set an expiration date, AWS KMS deletes the key material from the CMK on the specified date, and the CMK becomes unusable. To use the CMK again, you must reimport the same key material. The only way to change an expiration date is by reimporting the same key material and specifying a new expiration date.

When this operation is successful, the key state of the CMK changes from PendingImport to Enabled , and you can use the CMK.

If this operation fails, use the exception to help determine the problem. If the error is related to the key material, the import token, or wrapping key, use GetParametersForImport to get a new public key and import token for the CMK and repeat the import procedure. For help, see How To Import Key Material in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

  • 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. The key material must be encrypted with the public wrapping key that GetParametersForImport returned, using the wrapping algorithm that you specified in the same GetParametersForImport 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 quota .

    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.
  • 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. 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 .

        • Constraints (dict) --

          A list of key-value pairs that must be present in the encryption context of certain subsequent operations that the grant allows.

          • 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) --
    • NextMarker (string) --

      When Truncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

    • Truncated (boolean) --

      A flag that indicates whether there are more items in the list. When this value is true, the list in this response is truncated. To get more items, pass the value of the NextMarker element in thisresponse to the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

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 cannot exceed 32 kilobytes (32768 bytes). For more information, see Resource Quotas in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

  • 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

re_encrypt(**kwargs)

Decrypts ciphertext and then reencrypts it entirely within AWS KMS. You can use this operation to change the customer master key (CMK) under which data is encrypted, such as when you manually rotate a CMK or change the CMK that protects a ciphertext. You can also use it to reencrypt ciphertext under the same CMK, such as to change the encryption context of a ciphertext.

The ReEncrypt operation can decrypt ciphertext that was encrypted by using an AWS KMS CMK in an AWS KMS operation, such as Encrypt or GenerateDataKey . It can also decrypt ciphertext that was encrypted by using the public key of an asymmetric CMK outside of AWS KMS. However, it cannot decrypt ciphertext produced by other libraries, such as the AWS Encryption SDK or Amazon S3 client-side encryption . These libraries return a ciphertext format that is incompatible with AWS KMS.

When you use the ReEncrypt operation, you need to provide information for the decrypt operation and the subsequent encrypt operation.

  • If your ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric CMK, you must identify the source CMK , that is, the CMK that encrypted the ciphertext. You must also supply the encryption algorithm that was used. This information is required to decrypt the data.
  • It is optional, but you can specify a source CMK even when the ciphertext was encrypted under a symmetric CMK. This ensures that the ciphertext is decrypted only by using a particular CMK. If the CMK that you specify cannot decrypt the ciphertext, the ReEncrypt operation fails.
  • To reencrypt the data, you must specify the destination CMK , that is, the CMK that re-encrypts the data after it is decrypted. You can select a symmetric or asymmetric CMK. If the destination CMK is an asymmetric CMK, you must also provide the encryption algorithm. The algorithm that you choose must be compatible with the CMK.

Warning

When you use an asymmetric CMK to encrypt or reencrypt data, be sure to record the CMK and encryption algorithm that you choose. You will be required to provide the same CMK and encryption algorithm when you decrypt the data. If the CMK and algorithm do not match the values used to encrypt the data, the decrypt operation fails. You are not required to supply the CMK ID and encryption algorithm when you decrypt with symmetric CMKs because AWS KMS stores this information in the ciphertext blob. AWS KMS cannot store metadata in ciphertext generated with asymmetric keys. The standard format for asymmetric key ciphertext does not include configurable fields.

Unlike other AWS KMS API operations, ReEncrypt callers must have two permissions:

  • kms:ReEncryptFrom permission on the source CMK
  • kms:ReEncryptTo permission on the destination CMK

To permit reencryption from or to a CMK, include the "kms:ReEncrypt*" permission in your key policy . This permission is automatically included in the key policy when you use the console to create a CMK. But you must include it manually when you create a CMK programmatically or when you use the PutKeyPolicy operation to set a key policy.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

)
Parameters
  • CiphertextBlob (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Ciphertext of the data to reencrypt.

  • SourceEncryptionContext (dict) --

    Specifies the encryption context to use to decrypt the ciphertext. Enter the same encryption context that was used to encrypt the ciphertext.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represents additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is optional when encrypting with a symmetric CMK, but it is highly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • SourceKeyId (string) --

    A unique identifier for the CMK that is used to decrypt the ciphertext before it reencrypts it using the destination CMK.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric CMK. Otherwise, AWS KMS uses the metadata that it adds to the ciphertext blob to determine which CMK was used to encrypt the ciphertext. However, you can use this parameter to ensure that a particular CMK (of any kind) is used to decrypt the ciphertext before it is reencrypted.

    If you specify a KeyId value, the decrypt part of the ReEncrypt operation succeeds only if the specified CMK was used to encrypt the ciphertext.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" .

    For example:

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

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

  • DestinationKeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for the CMK that is used to reencrypt the data. Specify a symmetric or asymmetric CMK with a KeyUsage value of ENCRYPT_DECRYPT . To find the KeyUsage value of a CMK, use the DescribeKey operation.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias 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
    • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias
    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

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

  • DestinationEncryptionContext (dict) --

    Specifies that encryption context to use when the reencrypting the data.

    A destination encryption context is valid only when the destination CMK is a symmetric CMK. The standard ciphertext format for asymmetric CMKs does not include fields for metadata.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represents additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is optional when encrypting with a symmetric CMK, but it is highly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption Context in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • SourceEncryptionAlgorithm (string) --

    Specifies the encryption algorithm that AWS KMS will use to decrypt the ciphertext before it is reencrypted. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , represents the algorithm used for symmetric CMKs.

    Specify the same algorithm that was used to encrypt the ciphertext. If you specify a different algorithm, the decrypt attempt fails.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric CMK.

  • DestinationEncryptionAlgorithm (string) --

    Specifies the encryption algorithm that AWS KMS will use to reecrypt the data after it has decrypted it. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT , represents the encryption algorithm used for symmetric CMKs.

    This parameter is required only when the destination CMK is an asymmetric CMK.

  • GrantTokens (list) --

    A list of grant tokens.

    For more information, see Grant Tokens 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.

revoke_grant(**kwargs)

Revokes the specified grant for the specified customer master key (CMK). You can revoke a grant to actively deny operations that depend on it.

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

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.revoke_grant(
    KeyId='string',
    GrantId='string'
)
Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [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

Exceptions

Examples

The following example revokes a grant.

response = client.revoke_grant(
    # The identifier of the grant to revoke.
    GrantId='0c237476b39f8bc44e45212e08498fbe3151305030726c0590dd8d3e9f3d6a60',
    # The identifier of the customer master key (CMK) associated with the grant. 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': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Parameters
  • KeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The unique identifier of the customer master key (CMK) to delete.

    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 .

  • PendingWindowInDays (integer) --

    The waiting period, specified in number of days. After the waiting period ends, AWS KMS deletes the customer master key (CMK).

    This value is optional. If you include a value, it must be between 7 and 30, inclusive. If you do not include a value, it defaults to 30.

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

Creates a digital signature for a message or message digest by using the private key in an asymmetric CMK. To verify the signature, use the Verify operation, or use the public key in the same asymmetric CMK outside of AWS KMS. For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Digital signatures are generated and verified by using asymmetric key pair, such as an RSA or ECC pair that is represented by an asymmetric customer master key (CMK). The key owner (or an authorized user) uses their private key to sign a message. Anyone with the public key can verify that the message was signed with that particular private key and that the message hasn't changed since it was signed.

To use the Sign operation, provide the following information:

  • Use the KeyId parameter to identify an asymmetric CMK with a KeyUsage value of SIGN_VERIFY . To get the KeyUsage value of a CMK, use the DescribeKey operation. The caller must have kms:Sign permission on the CMK.
  • Use the Message parameter to specify the message or message digest to sign. You can submit messages of up to 4096 bytes. To sign a larger message, generate a hash digest of the message, and then provide the hash digest in the Message parameter. To indicate whether the message is a full message or a digest, use the MessageType parameter.
  • Choose a signing algorithm that is compatible with the CMK.

Warning

When signing a message, be sure to record the CMK and the signing algorithm. This information is required to verify the signature.

To verify the signature that this operation generates, use the Verify operation. Or use the GetPublicKey operation to download the public key and then use the public key to verify the signature outside of AWS KMS.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

    Identifies an asymmetric CMK. AWS KMS uses the private key in the asymmetric CMK to sign the message. The KeyUsage type of the CMK must be SIGN_VERIFY . To find the KeyUsage of a CMK, use the DescribeKey operation.

    To specify a CMK, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/" . To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN or alias 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

    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

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

  • Message (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the message or message digest to sign. Messages can be 0-4096 bytes. To sign a larger message, provide the message digest.

    If you provide a message, AWS KMS generates a hash digest of the message and then signs it.

  • MessageType (string) -- Tells AWS KMS whether the value of the Message parameter is a message or message digest. The default value, RAW, indicates a message. To indicate a message digest, enter DIGEST .
  • GrantTokens (list) --

    A list of grant tokens.

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

    • (string) --
  • SigningAlgorithm (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the signing algorithm to use when signing the message.

    Choose an algorithm that is compatible with the type and size of the specified asymmetric CMK.

update_alias(**kwargs)

Associates an existing AWS KMS alias with a different customer master key (CMK). Each alias is associated with only one CMK at a time, although a CMK can have multiple aliases. The alias and the CMK must be in the same AWS account and region. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.

The current and new CMK must be the same type (both symmetric or both asymmetric), and they must have the same key usage (ENCRYPT_DECRYPT or SIGN_VERIFY ). This restriction prevents errors in code that uses aliases. If you must assign an alias to a different type of CMK, use DeleteAlias to delete the old alias and CreateAlias to create a new alias.

You cannot use UpdateAlias to change an alias name. To change an alias name, use DeleteAlias to delete the old alias and CreateAlias to create a new 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 CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. 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]

    Identifies the alias that is changing its CMK. This value must begin with alias/ followed by the alias name, such as alias/ExampleAlias . You cannot use UpdateAlias to change the alias name.

  • TargetKeyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Identifies the CMK to associate with the alias. When the update operation completes, the alias will point to this CMK.

    The CMK must be in the same AWS account and Region as the alias. Also, the new target CMK must be the same type as the current target CMK (both symmetric or both asymmetric) and they must have the same key usage.

    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

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.

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

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

  • Description (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    New description for the CMK.

Returns

None

    KeyId='1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

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

Verifies a digital signature that was generated by the Sign operation.

Verification confirms that an authorized user signed the message with the specified CMK and signing algorithm, and the message hasn't changed since it was signed. If the signature is verified, the value of the SignatureValid field in the response is True . If the signature verification fails, the Verify operation fails with an KMSInvalidSignatureException exception.

A digital signature is generated by using the private key in an asymmetric CMK. The signature is verified by using the public key in the same asymmetric CMK. For information about symmetric and asymmetric CMKs, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric CMKs in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

To verify a digital signature, you can use the Verify operation. Specify the same asymmetric CMK, message, and signing algorithm that were used to produce the signature.

You can also verify the digital signature by using the public key of the CMK outside of AWS KMS. Use the GetPublicKey operation to download the public key in the asymmetric CMK and then use the public key to verify the signature outside of AWS KMS. The advantage of using the Verify operation is that it is performed within AWS KMS. As a result, it's easy to call, the operation is performed within the FIPS boundary, it is logged in AWS CloudTrail, and you can use key policy and IAM policy to determine who is authorized to use the CMK to verify signatures.

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

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

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

  • Message (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the message that was signed. You can submit a raw message of up to 4096 bytes, or a hash digest of the message. If you submit a digest, use the MessageType parameter with a value of DIGEST .

    If the message specified here is different from the message that was signed, the signature verification fails. A message and its hash digest are considered to be the same message.

  • MessageType (string) --

    Tells AWS KMS whether the value of the Message parameter is a message or message digest. The default value, RAW, indicates a message. To indicate a message digest, enter DIGEST .

    Warning

    Use the DIGEST value only when the value of the Message parameter is a message digest. If you use the DIGEST value with a raw message, the security of the verification operation can be compromised.

  • Signature (bytes) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The signature that the Sign operation generated.

  • SigningAlgorithm (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The signing algorithm that was used to sign the message. If you submit a different algorithm, the signature verification fails.

  • GrantTokens (list) --

    A list of grant tokens.

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

    • (string) --

class KMS.Client.exceptions.CloudHsmClusterInvalidConfigurationException

The request was rejected because the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster did not meet the configuration requirements for a custom key store.

  • The cluster must be configured with private subnets in at least two different Availability Zones in the Region.
  • The security group for the cluster (cloudhsm-cluster-<cluster-id> -sg) must include inbound rules and outbound rules that allow TCP traffic on ports 2223-2225. The Source in the inbound rules and the Destination in the outbound rules must match the security group ID. These rules are set by default when you create the cluster. Do not delete or change them. To get information about a particular security group, use the DescribeSecurityGroups operation.
  • The cluster must contain at least as many HSMs as the operation requires. To add HSMs, use the AWS CloudHSM CreateHsm operation. For the CreateCustomKeyStore , UpdateCustomKeyStore , and CreateKey operations, the AWS CloudHSM cluster must have at least two active HSMs, each in a different Availability Zone. For the ConnectCustomKeyStore operation, the AWS CloudHSM must contain at least one active HSM.
