great tip thank you!

Cloud HSM is FIPS 140-2 Level 3. AWS KMS is not FIPS 140-2 Level 3 for all modules

Good point! I actually searched for this a couple of days ago, too. Here is the reference: "HSM that has been validated to FIPS 140-2 level 3 overall (the HSMs used in the standard KMS key store are validated to level 2 with level 3 in multiple categories)" [1]https://aws.amazon.com/kms/faqs/?nc1=f_ls
