What is a Centralized Key Management System?

Key Management Service (KMS) with HSM grade security allows organizations to generate, store, and use crypto keys, certificates, and secrets.

A centralized Key Management Service provides control and visibility into key management operations across all data sources, whether on any cloud, or on-prem, using a centralized web-based UI with enterprise-level access controls and single sign-in support.

The "single pane of glass" delivers simplified administration and increased control, which includes extensive logging and auditing across the entire infrastructure.

Here are some critical requirements for a centralized KMS. It must be built to scale horizontally and geographically. It must offer automated load balancing, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, and high availability.

Business critical apps can integrate using traditional crypto interfaces or restful APIs. A unified policy management and quorum approvals can integrate seamlessly with existing authentication identity providers.
