Google Cloud Platform finally offers key management service

Google is finally giving administrators the ability to manage their encryption keys in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with its Cloud Key Management Service (KMS). Google is the last of the three major cloud providers to provide the key management service, as Amazon and Microsoft already have similar offerings.

The Cloud KMS, currently in beta, helps administrators manage the encryption keys for their organization without having to maintain an on-premise key management system or deploy hardware security modules. With Cloud KMS, administrators can manage all the organization’s encryption keys, not only the ones used to protect data in GCP.

Administrators can create, use, rotate, and destroy AES-256 symmetric encryption keys via the Cloud KMS API. Multiple versions of a key can be active at any time for decryption, but only one primary key version can be used for encrypting new data. The rotation schedule can be defined to automatically generate a new key version at fixed time intervals. There’s also a built-in 24-hour delay when trying to destroy keys to prevent accidental or malicious loss. Cloud KMS integrates with GCP’s Cloud Identity Access Management and Cloud Audit Logging services so that administrators can manage permissions for individual keys and monitor usage.

BrandPost: The Advantages of Infrastructure and Platform as a Service

It’s probably on your to-do list to design a go-forward strategy for your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) deployment. But it’s probably behind the 103 other things also on that list. At PC Connection, our experts will tell you that IaaS is the true foundation for shifting your infrastructure to a cloud computing platform. So how do you get started on the path to IaaS? Read on to learn more.

Many organizations want to free themselves from maintaining at least some of their IT infrastructure. Owning and maintaining a data center has physical and security requirements that are becoming increasingly complex to deliver. At the physical level, you need to maintain servers and storage arrays, as well as power sources, backup power supplies, and generators—not to mention enabling your business continuity plan. Additionally, IT executives are now obligated to take more ownership for compliance regulations like HIPAA and PCI that add additional demands to an already full IT agenda.
