CreateKey - AWS Key Management Service

CreateKey

These examples show AWS CloudTrail log entries for the CreateKey operation.

A CreateKey log entry can result from a CreateKey request or the CreateKey operation for a ReplicateKey request.

The following example shows an CloudTrail log entry for a CreateKey operation that creates a symmetric KMS key. For information about creating KMS keys, see Creating keys.

The following example shows the CloudTrail log of a CreateKey operation that creates a symmetric KMS key in an AWS CloudHSM custom key store.
