The best way to understand AWS Key Management Service is to review the Developer Guide, part of our technical documentation. You can use the AWS Management Console or AWS KMS APIs to create your first key and define a policy to control how it can be used in minutes.
The easiest way to start using KMS is to use the console user interface located under the “Security, Identity & Compliance” section of the AWS console. This user interface will walk you through setting up new keys and policies.
AWS Key Management Service is supported in the AWS SDKs so you can easily make AWS calls using KMS as well as integrate KMS managed encryption into your own applications. To get started visit the AWS Developer’s site today.
