    The below question is listed in one of the practice exams and the answer
    provided is AWS CloudHSM. However I think its should be AWS KMS as the
    question as for publishing logs to Cloud Watch. Please review and let me

    The IT Security team is evaluating its strategy in storing the
    encryption keys used by various applications in the company’s VPC. The
    requirements are as follows:

    – You control and manage your own keys.

    – AWS should only manage the hardware security module appliance, but
    does not have access to your keys.

    – Improves application performance due to close proximity with AWS
    workloads. The storage should be accessible by using VPCs only.

    – Highly-available secure key storage in tamper-resistant hardware
    available in multiple Availability Zones (AZs).

    – Can publish audit logs to CloudWatch Logs.
