Managing Keys in AWS CloudHSM - AWS CloudHSM

Managing Keys in AWS CloudHSM

In AWS CloudHSM, use any of the following to manage keys on the HSMs in your cluster:

  • PKCS #11 library

  • JCE provider

  • CNG and KSP providers

  • key_mgmt_util

Before you can manage keys, you must log in to the HSM with the user name and password of a crypto user (CU). Only a CU can create a key. The CU who creates a key owns and manages that key.
