"Hardware security module with custom encryption key"

AWS Cloud HSM is a cloud based hardware security module for your application or services on aws.It enables you to generate and use your own encryption keys on aws cloud.The best part is that you can use your custom generated encryption keys on a FIPS 140-2 level 3 compliant HSM.If you are not a cloud security guy,you might not get what it is,but briefly it is a high standard security hardware based module.It also protects your keys which is really required.Regarding the cost,as all aws services are comparatively low in cost,AWS CloudHSM offers pay as you go feature so that you pay as you use the service which eliminates useless costs.It is overall a good hardware security solution for aws.

What do you dislike?

AWS CloudHSM is one of the best HSM i have ever used, until now there is nothing bad what i found, but if i have to say something what i dislike i will say, the prices change depends of the location of aws server. And there can be a noticiable diference between them.

"AWS CLoudHSM is a winner"

What do you like best?

When you use an HSM from AWS CloudHSM, you can perform a variety of cryptographic tasks. AWS CloudHSM provides hardware security modules in the AWS Cloud. Using these cryptographic operations provides secure storage for cryptographic keys.

What do you dislike?

If you want a managed service for creating and controlling your encryption keys, you have to use AWS Key Management Service. Which is an extra charge and service and charge.

I believe this is a great solution for medium to large companies.
