Key Protect is an encryption key management service that offers a simple and economical key management solution for managing keys that are used to encrypt data that is stored in the IBM Cloud. Key Protect manages the entire lifecycle of keys from key creation through application use, key archival, and key destruction, while also enforcing separation of duties between data management and key management.
Key Protect supports BYOK (Bring-Your-Own-Key – customer managed encryption) with applicable IBM data services. BYOK allows users to import master root-of-trust encryption keys created internally to better manage the security of their data-at-rest saved in the IBM Cloud.
