Amazon Key Management Service now allows you to import key material in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, enabling you to maintain local control over your key material while still taking advantage of the other KMS features such as service integration. Customers tell us that local control over the generation and storage of keys can sometimes help them meet their security and compliance requirements. 

You can generate key material, and then select that key material as the source for new keys you create within the KMS console, or using the Amazon CLI or Amazon SDK. For more information about Amazon KMS, visit the product page
