KMS client setup keys
So… What is KMS? For Windows Server For Windows Server R2: By installing that key, you are configuring the server to act as a KMS host.
Using AWS KMS Custom Key Store with CloudHSM to Encrypt Your Data

Invent announcements that was of most interest to me actually occurred at the beginning of the conference, before the first keynote. Primarily, custom key stores give users that have stringent security requirements the best of both worlds. They can use CloudHSM to store and self-manage encryption keys that need to be protected in a hardware security module HSM that is single-tenant or need to be audited independently of KMS.
This process is transparent to any client application that is leveraging KMS for encryption. To illustrate how this would work in the real world, I am going to use the rest of this blog post to walk though how to configure a custom key store for use with a client-side encryption application. CloudOut gives user the ability to archive their backup data to cloud object store solutions, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service S3. Rubrik CloudOut encrypts all data client-side before it is uploaded to S3.
Note that the setup of CloudHSM and the a custom key store in this post will work the same with any application that integrates with KMS. To read more about data encryption in general and cloud encryption in particular, I invite you to read my earlier blog series on the topic. Click on the Create cluster button on the upper left-hand of the console which bring you to the Create cluster wizard.
Each subnet needs to be in a different Availability Zone AZ. For this post, we will choose 2 subnets in us-west-2 Oregon. We click on the Review button and then confirm creation of the new cluster. The console will assign a Cluster ID and show the cluster creation is in progress. It will take several minutes for the cluster to be created. At that point, the status will change from Create in progress to Uninitialized.
Th next step is to initialize the new cluster for use. We click on the word Initialize next to the new cluster and we are prompted to create the first HSM in the cluster. The creation process will take some time since a dedicated HSM has to be provisioned and configured. We will need to sign the CSR with a self-signed signing certificate to initialize the cluster.
We will be creating our signing certificate using a private key we create through OpenSSL. In a production scenario, you would want to create the private key using something more secure like an offline HSM.
This certificate file will need to be copied to every host that will connect to our CloudHSM cluster. To finish initializing the cluster, we go back to the CloudHSM console and click Next through the Initialize cluster wizard until we reach the screen for uploading our certificates. Once the cluster is initialized, we can click on the Cluster ID to get more details about our cluster.
The next step is to activate the cluster. Next we need to enable end-to-end encryption. This temporary user is called the precrypto officer PRECO and its credentials are what we use to activate the cluster. Under the hood, the following is happening: This will help keep the HSM nodes in our cluster in sync. We log in as the CO admin user to create our new kmsuser CU account. Note that we are now logged into both HSM nodes in the cluster. Since one of the requirements is that the custom key store must be in the same AWS account and Region as the CloudHSM cluster, we will be creating be key store in us-west-2 Oregon.
We navigate to the Custom key stores page and click the Create a custom key store button. Create a name for our custom key store. Choose the CloudHSM cluster we created earlier.
Upload the trust anchor certificate for the CloudHSM cluster. Enter the password for the kmsuser CU user we created earlier. Once the new custom key store is create, it will need to be connected to our CloudHSM. In the Add alias and description dialog box, we provide an alias and a description. Click on Next again to skip creating Tags. For this post, we will be assigning the CMK to a user named rubrik-cloudout that will be uploading files to an S3 bucket as part of the Rubrik CloudOut solution.
Review and edit the key policy that will be granted to our IAM users. We will leave the policy as is and click on Finish. We can drill down into our new CMK to get more details.
Under the covers, however, the key material is not generated and stored in KMS, which is a multi-tenant solution. Configuring Rubrik CloudOut to use KMS To show you an example of how the integration would work with an application, we will quickly walk though configuring Rubrik to use our new custom key store-backed CMK for client-side encryption of data. We log into a Rubrik cluster and navigate to the Archival Locations page. The bucket, relevant bucket policy, and IAM user have been previously created and configured.
Rubrik will confirm access to the S3 bucket and correct permissions to the CMK prior to creating the new Archival Location. From this point, all data that is designated for our rubrik-tme-or bucket will be encrypted client-side by Rubrik using our newly created CMK to encrypt the data keys.

In order to activate clients, the KMS uses a KMS host key. automatically within 2 hours (as this is the ‘KMS Activation Interval’ default value). Microsoft offers for most of its products generic keys that allow you to install the software, facilitate an update or some cases to test, to buy a. Pro, etc. end-users as well as KMS keys. In the case of an Enterprise, it is different. Microsoft offers default or Generic Windows 10 Product Keys.
