    Currently I am preparing SCS-C01 and I read a article about AWS KMS from and it says “AWS KMS is replacing the term customer master key (CMK) with AWS KMS key and KMS key” but in Tutorialsdojo questions, it keeps using CMK. Also AWS managed keys rotate every year instead of 3 years as of May 2022.

    I am scheduling SCS-C01 in next week and wonder whether I have to memorize AWS managed key rotation as 1-year or 3-year.

    Hello dchoi,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The rotation update for AWS Managed keys was just introduced last May. Please note that any services/features needs to be around for at least 6 months before AWS adds them to the question bank. Hence, it’s safe to say that 3 years is still relevant to the current exam.
