If you create an encrypted AMI (with Master Key) and launch an EC2 (with root volume encrypted), what is the behavior of this EC2 if a user (w/wo access to the MK) login?

I know this is convoluted.


I just tried, the EC2 instance with this encrypted AMI cannot even launch (EC2 was initialized by the MK owner account), then what is the purpose of encrypting the root volume?
