Description

This course looks at how you can use the same Customer Master Keys (CMKs) for encryption across multiple AWS accounts using the Key Management Service.  It will define the key principles and components required to share the CMKs in addition to a demonstration on how to carry out those actions.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and understanding of how to share your CMKs used within the AWS Key Management Service service across each of your AWS accounts, allowing you to implement encryption using the same keys

Intended Audience

This course has been created for security engineers and architects who are responsible for managing and implementing data encryption methods across AWS accounts.  

Prerequisites

To get the most from this course you should be familiar with the Key Management Service and IAM permissions and JSON policies.  For more information relating to both AWS IAM and KMS, please see our existing courses here:

Transcript

Hello and welcome. In this course, I will be looking at how we can use the same customer master key, or CMK, for encryption across multiple AWS accounts using the Key Management Service. My name is Stuart Scott and if you have any questions, please reach out to me using the details shown on screen. Alternatively, you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question.

This course has been created for security engineers and architects who are responsible for managing and implementing data encryption methods across AWS accounts. And this course will define the key principles and components within KMS that are needed to share CMKs across your accounts. And I will then perform a demonstration on how to implement this sharing.

By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and understanding of how to use KMS and your CMKs across each of your AWS accounts. And to get the most from this course, you should be familiar with the Key Management Service and IAM permissions and JSON policies. Okay, let's get started.
