class aws_cdk.aws_kms.Key(scope, id, *, admins=None, alias=None, description=None, enabled=None, enable_key_rotation=None, key_spec=None, key_usage=None, pending_window=None, policy=None, removal_policy=None, trust_account_identities=None)

Bases: aws_cdk.core.Resource

Defines a KMS key.

Resource

AWS::KMS::Key

Parameters
  • scope (Construct) –

  • id (str) –

  • admins (Optional[Sequence[IPrincipal]]) – A list of principals to add as key administrators to the key policy. Key administrators have permissions to manage the key (e.g., change permissions, revoke), but do not have permissions to use the key in cryptographic operations (e.g., encrypt, decrypt). These principals will be added to the default key policy (if none specified), or to the specified policy (if provided). Default: []

  • alias (Optional[str]) – Initial alias to add to the key. More aliases can be added later by calling addAlias. Default: - No alias is added for the key.

  • description (Optional[str]) – A description of the key. Use a description that helps your users decide whether the key is appropriate for a particular task. Default: - No description.

  • enabled (Optional[bool]) – Indicates whether the key is available for use. Default: - Key is enabled.

  • enable_key_rotation (Optional[bool]) – Indicates whether AWS KMS rotates the key. Default: false

  • key_spec (Optional[KeySpec]) – The cryptographic configuration of the key. The valid value depends on usage of the key. IMPORTANT: If you change this property of an existing key, the existing key is scheduled for deletion and a new key is created with the specified value. Default: KeySpec.SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT

  • key_usage (Optional[KeyUsage]) – The cryptographic operations for which the key can be used. IMPORTANT: If you change this property of an existing key, the existing key is scheduled for deletion and a new key is created with the specified value. Default: KeyUsage.ENCRYPT_DECRYPT

  • pending_window (Optional[Duration]) – Specifies the number of days in the waiting period before AWS KMS deletes a CMK that has been removed from a CloudFormation stack. When you remove a customer master key (CMK) from a CloudFormation stack, AWS KMS schedules the CMK for deletion and starts the mandatory waiting period. The PendingWindowInDays property determines the length of waiting period. During the waiting period, the key state of CMK is Pending Deletion, which prevents the CMK from being used in cryptographic operations. When the waiting period expires, AWS KMS permanently deletes the CMK. Enter a value between 7 and 30 days. Default: - 30 days

  • policy (Optional[PolicyDocument]) – Custom policy document to attach to the KMS key. NOTE - If the @aws-cdk/aws-kms:defaultKeyPolicies feature flag is set (the default for new projects), this policy will override the default key policy and become the only key policy for the key. If the feature flag is not set, this policy will be appended to the default key policy. Default: - A policy document with permissions for the account root to administer the key will be created.

  • removal_policy (Optional[RemovalPolicy]) – Whether the encryption key should be retained when it is removed from the Stack. This is useful when one wants to retain access to data that was encrypted with a key that is being retired. Default: RemovalPolicy.Retain

  • trust_account_identities (Optional[bool]) – (deprecated) Whether the key usage can be granted by IAM policies. Setting this to true adds a default statement which delegates key access control completely to the identity’s IAM policy (similar to how it works for other AWS resources). This matches the default behavior when creating KMS keys via the API or console. If the @aws-cdk/aws-kms:defaultKeyPolicies feature flag is set (the default for new projects), this flag will always be treated as ‘true’ and does not need to be explicitly set. Default: - false, unless the @aws-cdk/aws-kms:defaultKeyPolicies feature flag is set.

Methods

add_alias(alias_name)

Defines a new alias for the key.

Parameters

alias_name (str) –

Return type

Alias

add_to_resource_policy(statement, allow_no_op=None)

Adds a statement to the KMS key resource policy.

Parameters
  • statement (PolicyStatement) – The policy statement to add.

  • allow_no_op (Optional[bool]) – If this is set to false and there is no policy defined (i.e. external key), the operation will fail. Otherwise, it will no-op.

Return type

AddToResourcePolicyResult

apply_removal_policy(policy)

Apply the given removal policy to this resource.

The Removal Policy controls what happens to this resource when it stops being managed by CloudFormation, either because you’ve removed it from the CDK application or because you’ve made a change that requires the resource to be replaced.

The resource can be deleted (RemovalPolicy.DELETE), or left in your AWS account for data recovery and cleanup later (RemovalPolicy.RETAIN).

Parameters

policy (RemovalPolicy) –

Return type

None

grant(grantee, *actions)

Grant the indicated permissions on this key to the given principal.

This modifies both the principal’s policy as well as the resource policy, since the default CloudFormation setup for KMS keys is that the policy must not be empty and so default grants won’t work.

Parameters
Return type

Grant

grant_admin(grantee)

Grant admins permissions using this key to the given principal.

Key administrators have permissions to manage the key (e.g., change permissions, revoke), but do not have permissions to use the key in cryptographic operations (e.g., encrypt, decrypt).

Parameters

grantee (IGrantable) –

Return type

Grant

grant_decrypt(grantee)

Grant decryption permissions using this key to the given principal.

Parameters

grantee (IGrantable) –

Return type

Grant

grant_encrypt(grantee)

Grant encryption permissions using this key to the given principal.

Parameters

grantee (IGrantable) –

Return type

Grant

grant_encrypt_decrypt(grantee)

Grant encryption and decryption permissions using this key to the given principal.

Parameters

grantee (IGrantable) –

Return type

Grant

to_string()

Returns a string representation of this construct.

Return type

str

Attributes

env

The environment this resource belongs to.

For resources that are created and managed by the CDK (generally, those created by creating new class instances like Role, Bucket, etc.), this is always the same as the environment of the stack they belong to; however, for imported resources (those obtained from static methods like fromRoleArn, fromBucketName, etc.), that might be different than the stack they were imported into.

Return type

ResourceEnvironment

key_arn

The ARN of the key.

Return type

str

key_id

1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab).

Type

The ID of the key (the part that looks something like

Return type

str

node

The construct tree node associated with this construct.

Return type

ConstructNode

stack

The stack in which this resource is defined.

Return type

Stack

Static Methods

classmethod from_cfn_key(cfn_key)

Create a mutable {@link IKey} based on a low-level {@link CfnKey}.

This is most useful when combined with the cloudformation-include module. This method is different than {@link fromKeyArn()} because the {@link IKey} returned from this method is mutable; meaning, calling any mutating methods on it, like {@link IKey.addToResourcePolicy()}, will actually be reflected in the resulting template, as opposed to the object returned from {@link fromKeyArn()}, on which calling those methods would have no effect.

Parameters

cfn_key (CfnKey) –

Return type

IKey

classmethod from_key_arn(scope, id, key_arn)

Import an externally defined KMS Key using its ARN.

Parameters
  • scope (Construct) – the construct that will “own” the imported key.

  • id (str) – the id of the imported key in the construct tree.

  • key_arn (str) – the ARN of an existing KMS key.

Return type

IKey

classmethod from_lookup(scope, id, *, alias_name)

Import an existing Key by querying the AWS environment this stack is deployed to.

This function only needs to be used to use Keys not defined in your CDK application. If you are looking to share a Key between stacks, you can pass the Key object between stacks and use it as normal. In addition, it’s not necessary to use this method if an interface accepts an IKey. In this case, Alias.fromAliasName() can be used which returns an alias that extends IKey.

Calling this method will lead to a lookup when the CDK CLI is executed. You can therefore not use any values that will only be available at CloudFormation execution time (i.e., Tokens).

The Key information will be cached in cdk.context.json and the same Key will be used on future runs. To refresh the lookup, you will have to evict the value from the cache using the cdk context command. See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cdk/latest/guide/context.html for more information.

Parameters
  • scope (Construct) –

  • id (str) –

  • alias_name (str) – The alias name of the Key.

Return type

IKey

classmethod is_construct(x)

Return whether the given object is a Construct.

Parameters

x (Any) –

Return type

bool

classmethod is_resource(construct)

Check whether the given construct is a Resource.

Parameters

construct (IConstruct) –
