Difference between Cloud HSM VS KMS

KMS also supports Asymmetric encryption but the video states different.


Your right but when you watch the HSM section, this is switched. I think that was an incorrect slide that was later corrected and wasn’t switched in the KMS section.

Correct. However, CloudHMS is FIPS 140-3 validated.


This is distinction get pretty deep the more you research this. AWS has many related documentation sites: https://aws.amazon.com/products/security/
