Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) is an encryption and key management web service. This guide describes the AWS KMS operations that you can call programmatically. For general information about AWS KMS, see the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Note: AWS provides SDKs that consist of libraries and sample code for various programming languages and platforms (Java, Ruby, .Net, macOS, Android, etc.). The SDKs provide a convenient way to create programmatic access to AWS KMS and other AWS services. For example, the SDKs take care of tasks such as signing requests (see below), managing errors, and retrying requests automatically. For more information about the AWS SDKs, including how to download and install them, see Tools for Amazon Web Services.

We recommend that you use the AWS SDKs to make programmatic API calls to AWS KMS.

Clients must support TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.0. We recommend TLS 1.2. Clients must also support cipher suites with Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) such as Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) or Elliptic Curve Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE). Most modern systems such as Java 7 and later support these modes.

Signing Requests

Requests must be signed by using an access key ID and a secret access key. We strongly recommend that you do not use your AWS account (root) access key ID and secret key for everyday work with AWS KMS. Instead, use the access key ID and secret access key for an IAM user. You can also use the AWS Security Token Service to generate temporary security credentials that you can use to sign requests.

All AWS KMS operations require Signature Version 4.

Logging API Requests

AWS KMS supports AWS CloudTrail, a service that logs AWS API calls and related events for your AWS account and delivers them to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. By using the information collected by CloudTrail, you can determine what requests were made to AWS KMS, who made the request, when it was made, and so on. To learn more about CloudTrail, including how to turn it on and find your log files, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

Commonly Used API Operations

Of the API operations discussed in this guide, the following will prove the most useful for most applications. You will likely perform operations other than these, such as creating keys and assigning policies, by using the console.

Sending a Request Using KMS

var kms = new AWS.KMS();
kms.cancelKeyDeletion(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the KMS object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var kms = new AWS.KMS({apiVersion: '2014-11-01'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the kms service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  kms: '2014-11-01',
  // other service API versions
};

var kms = new AWS.KMS();

Method Details

cancelKeyDeletion(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To cancel deletion of a customer master key (CMK)


/* The following example cancels deletion of the specified CMK. */

 var params = {
  KeyId: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"// 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.
 };
 kms.cancelKeyDeletion(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    KeyId: "arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"// The ARN of the CMK whose deletion you canceled.
   }
   */
 });

Calling the cancelKeyDeletion operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.cancelKeyDeletion(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • KeyId — (String)

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

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

connectCustomKeyStore(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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

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

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

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

During the connection process, AWS KMS finds the AWS CloudHSM cluster that is associated with the custom key store, creates the connection infrastructure, connects to the cluster, logs into the AWS CloudHSM client as the kmsuser crypto user (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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the connectCustomKeyStore operation

var params = {
  CustomKeyStoreId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.connectCustomKeyStore(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

      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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createAlias(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To create an alias


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

 var params = {
  AliasName: "alias/ExampleAlias", // 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.
  TargetKeyId: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"// 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.
 };
 kms.createAlias(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
 });

Calling the createAlias operation

var params = {
  AliasName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  TargetKeyId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.createAlias(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • AliasName — (String)

      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)

      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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createCustomKeyStore(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the createCustomKeyStore operation

var params = {
  CloudHsmClusterId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  CustomKeyStoreName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  KeyStorePassword: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  TrustAnchorCertificate: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.createCustomKeyStore(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CustomKeyStoreName — (String)

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

    • CloudHsmClusterId — (String)

      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)

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

    • KeyStorePassword — (String)

      Enter the password of the kmsuser crypto user (CU) account in the specified AWS CloudHSM cluster. AWS KMS logs into the cluster as this user to manage key material on your behalf.

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

        A unique identifier for the new custom key store.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createGrant(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      The unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK) that the grant applies to.

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

      For example:

      • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

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

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

    • GranteePrincipal — (String)

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

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

    • RetiringPrincipal — (String)

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

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

    • Operations — (Array<String>)

      A list of operations that the grant permits.

    • Constraints — (map)

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

      • EncryptionContextSubset — (map<String>)

        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.

      • EncryptionContextEquals — (map<String>)

        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.

    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

      A list of grant tokens.

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

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • GrantToken — (String)

        The grant token.

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

      • GrantId — (String)

        The unique identifier for the grant.

        You can use the GrantId in a subsequent RetireGrant or RevokeGrant operation.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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 or data key 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 .

 });

Calling the createKey operation

var params = {
  BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck: true || false,
  CustomKeyStoreId: 'STRING_VALUE',
  CustomerMasterKeySpec: RSA_2048 | RSA_3072 | RSA_4096 | ECC_NIST_P256 | ECC_NIST_P384 | ECC_NIST_P521 | ECC_SECG_P256K1 | SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT,

      TagValue: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
    },
    /* more items */
  ]
};
kms.createKey(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Policy — (String)

      The key policy to attach to the CMK.

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

      • If you don't set BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck to true, the key policy must allow the principal that is making the CreateKey request to make a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK. This reduces the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section of the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

      • Each statement in the key policy must contain one or more principals. The principals in the key policy must exist and be visible to AWS KMS. When you create a new AWS principal (for example, an IAM user or role), you might need to enforce a delay before including the new principal in a key policy because the new principal might not be immediately visible to AWS KMS. For more information, see Changes that I make are not always immediately visible in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide.

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

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

    • Description — (String)

      A description of the CMK.

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

    • KeyUsage — (String)

      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.

      Possible values include:
      • "SIGN_VERIFY"
      • "ENCRYPT_DECRYPT"
    • CustomerMasterKeySpec — (String)

      Specifies the type of CMK to create. 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 its key policy or IAM policy.

      For help with choosing a key spec for your CMK, see Selecting a Customer Master Key Spec in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

      The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT, creates a CMK with a 256-bit symmetric key.

      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.

      Possible values include:
      • "RSA_2048"
      • "RSA_3072"
      • "RSA_4096"
      • "ECC_NIST_P256"
      • "ECC_NIST_P384"
      • "ECC_NIST_P521"
      • "ECC_SECG_P256K1"
      • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "AWS_KMS"
      • "EXTERNAL"
      • "AWS_CLOUDHSM"
    • 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.

      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 — (Array<map>)

      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.

      • TagKeyrequired — (String)

        The key of the tag.

      • TagValuerequired — (String)

        The value of the tag.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

decrypt(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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

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.

  EncryptionAlgorithm: SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT | RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1 | RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256,
  EncryptionContext: {
    '<EncryptionContextKey>': 'STRING_VALUE',

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CiphertextBlob — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      Ciphertext to be decrypted. The blob includes metadata.

    • EncryptionContext — (map<String>)

      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.

    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

      A list of grant tokens.

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

    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • KeyId — (String)

        The ARN of the customer master key that was used to perform the decryption.

      • Plaintext — (Buffer(Node.js), Typed Array(Browser))

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

      • EncryptionAlgorithm — (String)

        The encryption algorithm that was used to decrypt the ciphertext.

        Possible values include:
        • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
        • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
        • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteAlias(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To delete an alias


/* The following example deletes the specified alias. */

 var params = {
  AliasName: "alias/ExampleAlias"// The alias to delete.
 };
 kms.deleteAlias(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
 });

Calling the deleteAlias operation

var params = {
  AliasName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.deleteAlias(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • AliasName — (String)

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteCustomKeyStore(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the deleteCustomKeyStore operation

var params = {
  CustomKeyStoreId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.deleteCustomKeyStore(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteImportedKeyMaterial(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To delete imported key material


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

 var params = {
  KeyId: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"// The identifier of the CMK whose imported key material you are deleting. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
 };
 kms.deleteImportedKeyMaterial(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
 });

Calling the deleteImportedKeyMaterial operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.deleteImportedKeyMaterial(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

describeCustomKeyStores(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the describeCustomKeyStores operation

var params = {
  CustomKeyStoreId: 'STRING_VALUE',
  CustomKeyStoreName: 'STRING_VALUE',
  Limit: 'NUMBER_VALUE',
  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
kms.describeCustomKeyStores(params, function(err, data) {

  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

      Gets only information about the specified custom key store. Enter the key store ID.

      By default, this operation gets information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To limit the output to a particular custom key store, you can use either the CustomKeyStoreId or CustomKeyStoreName parameter, but not both.

    • CustomKeyStoreName — (String)

      Gets only information about the specified custom key store. Enter the friendly name of the custom key store.

      By default, this operation gets information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To limit the output to a particular custom key store, you can use either the CustomKeyStoreId or CustomKeyStoreName parameter, but not both.

    • Limit — (Integer)

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

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CustomKeyStores — (Array<map>)

        Contains metadata about each custom key store.

        • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

          A unique identifier for the custom key store.

        • CustomKeyStoreName — (String)

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

        • CloudHsmClusterId — (String)

        • 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. For help resolving a connection failure, see Troubleshooting a Custom Key Store in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

      • 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.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

describeKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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

          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. This value is present only for CMKs whose Origin is EXTERNAL and whose ExpirationModel is KEY_MATERIAL_EXPIRES, otherwise this value is omitted.

        • Origin — (String)

          The source of the CMK's key material. When this value is AWS_KMS, AWS KMS created the key material. When this value is EXTERNAL, the key material was imported from your existing key management infrastructure or the CMK lacks key material. When this value is AWS_CLOUDHSM, the key material was created in the AWS CloudHSM cluster associated with a custom key store.

          Possible values include:

        • CloudHsmClusterId — (String)

          The cluster ID of the AWS CloudHSM cluster that contains the key material for the CMK. When you create a CMK in a custom key store, AWS KMS creates the key material for the CMK in the associated AWS CloudHSM cluster. This value is present only when the CMK is created in a custom key store.

        • ExpirationModel — (String)

          Specifies whether the CMK's key material expires. This value is present only when Origin is EXTERNAL, otherwise this value is omitted.

          Possible values include:
          • "KEY_MATERIAL_EXPIRES"
          • "KEY_MATERIAL_DOES_NOT_EXPIRE"
        • KeyManager — (String)

          The manager of the CMK. CMKs in your AWS account are either customer managed or AWS managed. For more information about the difference, see Customer Master Keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

disconnectCustomKeyStore(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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. In the first region, generate a data key and use the plaintext key to encrypt the data. Then, in the new region, call the Encrypt method on same plaintext data key. Now, you can safely move the encrypted data and encrypted data key to the new region, and decrypt in the new region when necessary.

You don't need 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.

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.

Examples:

To encrypt data


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

 var params = {
  KeyId: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab", // The identifier of the CMK to use for encryption. You can use the key ID or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK, or the name or ARN of an alias that refers to the CMK.
  Plaintext: <Binary String>// The data to encrypt.
 };

   }
   */
 });

Calling the encrypt operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Plaintext: Buffer.from('...') || 'STRING_VALUE' /* Strings will be Base-64 encoded on your behalf */, /* required */
  EncryptionAlgorithm: SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT | RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1 | RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256,

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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:

      • 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.

    • Plaintext — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      Data to be encrypted.

    • EncryptionContext — (map<String>)

      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.

    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

      A list of grant tokens.

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

    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CiphertextBlob — (Buffer(Node.js), Typed Array(Browser))

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

      • KeyId — (String)

        The ID of the key used during encryption.

      • EncryptionAlgorithm — (String)

        The encryption algorithm that was used to encrypt the plaintext.

        Possible values include:
        • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
        • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
        • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

generateDataKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Generates a unique symmetric data key. This operation returns a plaintext copy of the data key and a copy that is encrypted under a customer master key (CMK) that you specify. You can use the plaintext key to encrypt your data outside of 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 key are not related to the caller or CMK that is used to encrypt the data key.

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.

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.

If the operation succeeds, the plaintext copy of the data key is in the Plaintext field of the response, and the encrypted copy of the data key in the CiphertextBlob field.

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.

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

  1. Use the GenerateDataKey operation to get a data encryption key.

  2. Use the plaintext data key (returned in the Plaintext field of the response) to encrypt data locally, then erase the plaintext data key from memory.

  3. Store the encrypted data key (returned in the CiphertextBlob field of the response) alongside the locally encrypted data.

To decrypt data locally:

  1. Use the Decrypt operation to decrypt the encrypted data key. The operation returns a plaintext copy of the data key.

  2. Use the plaintext data key to decrypt data locally, then erase the plaintext data key from memory.

To generate a data key


/* 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). */

 var params = {
  KeyId: "alias/ExampleAlias", // 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.
  KeySpec: "AES_256"// Specifies the type of data key to return.
 };
 kms.generateDataKey(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    CiphertextBlob: <Binary String>, // The encrypted data key.
    KeyId: "arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab", // The ARN of the CMK that was used to encrypt the data key.
    Plaintext: <Binary String>// The unencrypted (plaintext) data key.
   }
   */
 });

Calling the generateDataKey operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  EncryptionContext: {
    '<EncryptionContextKey>': 'STRING_VALUE',
    /* '<EncryptionContextKey>': ... */
  },
  GrantTokens: [
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ],
  KeySpec: AES_256 | AES_128,
  NumberOfBytes: 'NUMBER_VALUE'
};
kms.generateDataKey(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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 — (map<String>)

      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.

    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "AES_256"
      • "AES_128"
    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

      A list of grant tokens.

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CiphertextBlob — (Buffer(Node.js), Typed Array(Browser))

        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 — (Buffer(Node.js), Typed Array(Browser))

        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 identifier of the CMK that encrypted the data key.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

generateDataKeyPair(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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. To get the type 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.

generateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Generates a unique asymmetric data key pair. The GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext operation returns a plaintext public key and a copy of the private key that is encrypted under the symmetric CMK you specify. Unlike GenerateDataKeyPair, this operation does not return a plaintext private key.

To generate a data key pair, you must specify a symmetric customer master key (CMK) to encrypt the private key in the data key pair. You cannot use an asymmetric CMK. To get the type of your CMK, use the KeySpec field in the DescribeKey response.

You can use the public key that GenerateDataKeyPairWithoutPlaintext 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.

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

generateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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 KeySpec field in the DescribeKey response. You must also specify the length of the data key using either the KeySpec or NumberOfBytes field (but not both). For common key lengths (128-bit and 256-bit symmetric keys), use the KeySpec parameter.

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

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.

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      The identifier of the symmetric customer master key (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:

    • EncryptionContext — (map<String>)

      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.

    • KeySpec — (String)

      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.

      • "AES_256"
      • "AES_128"
    • NumberOfBytes — (Integer)

      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 common key lengths (128-bit and 256-bit symmetric keys), we recommend that you use the KeySpec field instead of this one.

getKeyRotationStatus(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

getParametersForImport(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • KeyId — (String)

        The identifier of the CMK to use in a subsequent ImportKeyMaterial request. This is the same CMK specified in the GetParametersForImport request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

getPublicKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getPublicKey operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  GrantTokens: [
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ]
};
kms.getPublicKey(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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.

      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.

    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

      A list of grant tokens.

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

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • KeyId — (String)

        The identifier of the asymmetric CMK from which the public key was downloaded.

      • PublicKey — (Buffer(Node.js), Typed Array(Browser))

        The exported public key.

        This value is returned as a binary Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER)-encoded object. To decode it, use an ASN.1 parsing tool, such as OpenSSL asn1parse.

      • CustomerMasterKeySpec — (String)

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

        Possible values include:
        • "RSA_2048"
        • "RSA_3072"
        • "RSA_4096"
        • "ECC_NIST_P256"

        • "ECC_NIST_P521"
        • "ECC_SECG_P256K1"
        • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
      • 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.

        Possible values include:
        • "SIGN_VERIFY"
        • "ENCRYPT_DECRYPT"
      • EncryptionAlgorithms — (Array<String>)

        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.

      • SigningAlgorithms — (Array<String>)

        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.

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

importKeyMaterial(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "KEY_MATERIAL_EXPIRES"
      • "KEY_MATERIAL_DOES_NOT_EXPIRE"

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listAliases(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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

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

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

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

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Keys — (Array<map>)

        A list of customer master keys (CMKs).

        • KeyId — (String)

          Unique identifier of the key.

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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)

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

    • Policy — (String)

      The key policy to attach to the CMK.

      The key policy must meet the following criteria:

      • If you don't set BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck to true, the key policy must allow the principal that is making the PutKeyPolicy request to make a subsequent PutKeyPolicy request on the CMK. This reduces the risk that the CMK becomes unmanageable. For more information, refer to the scenario in the Default Key Policy section of the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

      • Each statement in the key policy must contain one or more principals. The principals in the key policy must exist and be visible to AWS KMS. When you create a new AWS principal (for example, an IAM user or role), you might need to enforce a delay before including the new principal in a key policy because the new principal might not be immediately visible to AWS KMS. For more information, see Changes that I make are not always immediately visible in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide.

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

    • BypassPolicyLockoutSafetyCheck — (Boolean)

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

      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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

reEncrypt(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

    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:EncryptFrom permission on the source CMK

  • kms:EncryptTo 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 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.

kms.reEncrypt(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CiphertextBlob — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      Ciphertext of the data to reencrypt.

    • SourceEncryptionContext — (map<String>)

      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.

    • 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)

      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 — (map<String>)

      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.

    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"
    • 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.

      Possible values include:
      • "SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1"
      • "RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256"
    • GrantTokens — (Array<String>)

retireGrant(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

scheduleKeyDeletion(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

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.

sign(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

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.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      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 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 — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      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. To indicate a message, enter RAW. To indicate a message digest, enter DIGEST.

      Possible values include:
      • "RAW"
      • "DIGEST"

tagResource(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Adds or edits tags for a customer master key (CMK). You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

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

You can only use a tag key once for each CMK. If you use the tag key again, AWS KMS replaces the current tag value with the specified value.

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.

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.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

updateAlias(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To update an alias


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

 var params = {
  AliasName: "alias/ExampleAlias", // The alias to update.
  TargetKeyId: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"// The identifier of the CMK that the alias will refer to after this operation succeeds. You can use the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
 };
 kms.updateAlias(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
 });

Calling the updateAlias operation

var params = {
  AliasName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  TargetKeyId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
kms.updateAlias(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • AliasName — (String)

      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)

      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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

updateCustomKeyStore(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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) 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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the updateCustomKeyStore operation

var params = {
  CustomKeyStoreId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  CloudHsmClusterId: 'STRING_VALUE',
  KeyStorePassword: 'STRING_VALUE',
  NewCustomKeyStoreName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
kms.updateCustomKeyStore(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CustomKeyStoreId — (String)

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

    • NewCustomKeyStoreName — (String)

      Changes the friendly name of the custom key store to the value that you specify. The custom key store name must be unique in the AWS account.

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

verify(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Verifies a digital signature that was generated by the Sign operation. This operation requires an asymmetric CMK with a KeyUsage value of SIGN_VERIFY.

Verification confirms that an authorized user signed the message with the specified key and signing algorithm, and the message hasn't changed since it was signed. 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 that was used by the Sign operation to generate the digital 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 result of the Verify operation, which is represented by its HTTP status code, does not indicate whether the signature verification succeeded or failed. To determine whether the signature was verified, see the SignatureValid field in the response.

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.

Examples:

Calling the verify operation

var params = {
  KeyId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Message: Buffer.from('...') || 'STRING_VALUE' /* Strings will be Base-64 encoded on your behalf */, /* required */
  Signature: Buffer.from('...') || 'STRING_VALUE' /* Strings will be Base-64 encoded on your behalf */, /* required */
  SigningAlgorithm: RSASSA_PSS_SHA_256 | RSASSA_PSS_SHA_384 | RSASSA_PSS_SHA_512 | RSASSA_PKCS1_V1_5_SHA_256 | RSASSA_PKCS1_V1_5_SHA_384 | RSASSA_PKCS1_V1_5_SHA_512 | ECDSA_SHA_256 | ECDSA_SHA_384 | ECDSA_SHA_512, /* required */

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • KeyId — (String)

      Identifies the asymmetric CMK that will be used to verify the signature. This must be the same CMK that was used to generate the signature. If you specify a different CMK, the value of the SignatureValid field in the response will be False.

      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.

    • Message — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      Specifies the message that was signed, or a hash digest of that message. Messages can be 0-4096 bytes. To verify a larger message, provide a hash digest of the message.

      If the digest of the message specified here is different from the message digest that was signed, the SignatureValid value in the response will be False.

    • MessageType — (String)

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

      Possible values include:
      • "RAW"
      • "DIGEST"
    • Signature — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

      The signature that the Sign operation generated.
