Key Storage

Each customer master key (CMK) that you create in AWS Key Management Service (KMS) costs ¥6.88/month until you delete it. If you opt-in to have the CMK automatically rotated each year, each newly rotated version will raise the cost of the CMK by ¥6.88/month. You are not charged for the following:

  • Creation and storage of AWS managed CMKs, which are automatically created on your behalf when you first attempt to encrypt data in another AWS service.
  • CMKs that are scheduled for deletion. If you cancel the deletion during the waiting period, the CMK will incur charges as though it was never scheduled for deletion.
  • Data keys, which are created by GenerateDataKey and GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext API requests. You are charged for these API requests per the usage pricing discussed below whether you make these API requests directly or they are made on your behalf by an integrated AWS service. You are not charged an ongoing monthly fee for the data keys themselves as they are neither stored nor managed by KMS.

Key Usage

Each API request to the AWS Key Management Service costs:

  • ¥0.20/ per 10,000 requests
