Creates a custom key store that is associated with an AWS CloudHSM cluster that you own and manage.


kms_create_custom_key_store(CustomKeyStoreName, CloudHsmClusterId,
  TrustAnchorCertificate, KeyStorePassword)



[required] Specifies a friendly name for the custom key store. The name must be unique in your AWS account.


[required] Identifies the AWS CloudHSM cluster for the custom key store. Enter the cluster ID of any active AWS CloudHSM cluster that is not already associated with a custom key store. To find the cluster ID, use the DescribeClusters operation.


[required] Enter the content of the trust anchor certificate for the cluster. This is the content of the customerCA.crt file that you created when you initialized the cluster.


[required] Enter the password of the kmsuser crypto user (CU) account in the specified AWS CloudHSM cluster. AWS KMS logs into the cluster as this user to manage key material on your behalf.

This parameter tells AWS KMS the kmsuser account password; it does not change the password in the AWS CloudHSM cluster.


This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

Before you create the custom key store, you must assemble the required elements, including an AWS CloudHSM cluster that fulfills the requirements for a custom key store. For details about the required elements, see Assemble the Prerequisites in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

When the operation completes successfully, it returns the ID of the new custom key store. Before you can use your new custom key store, you need to use the ConnectCustomKeyStore operation to connect the new key store to its AWS CloudHSM cluster. Even if you are not going to use your custom key store immediately, you might want to connect it to verify that all settings are correct and then disconnect it until you are ready to use it.

For help with failures, see Troubleshooting a Custom Key Store in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.
