Google Cloud Key Management

  • The Google Cloud Key Management Service (KMS) is a cloud-hosted key management service that enables you to manage encryption keys on the Google Cloud Platform.


  • Lets you manage your symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic keys the same way you manage them in an on-premises environment.
  • You can decide to use the keys generated by Cloud KMS with other Google Cloud services. These keys are known as customer-managed encryption keys (CMEK).
  • Can use external KMS to protect your data in Google Cloud and separate data from key.
  • You can generate a new key version for your symmetric keys automatically at a fixed time interval when you set a rotation schedule for your keys.

  • Encrypt Kubernetes secrets in GKE with keys you manage in Cloud KMS. Moreover, you can store API keys, passwords, certificates, and other sensitive information with the Secret Manager storage system.


  • Cloud KMS pricing is based on:
    • the number of active key versions
    • the protection level on the key versions
    • usage rate for key operations.
