Description
The Amazon AWS Key Management Service HSM is a multi-chip standalone hardware cryptographic appliance designed to provide dedicated cryptographic functions to meet the security and scalability requirements of the AWS Key Management Service (KMS). The cryptographic boundary is defined as the secure chassis of the appliance. All key materials are maintained exclusively in volatile memory in the appliance and are erased immediately upon detection of physical tampering.
