Customers in the AWS Europe (Milan) and AWS Africa (Cape Town) regions can now use AWS Secrets Manager to manage secrets such as database passwords and API keys needed to access their applications, services, and IT resources.  

AWS Secrets Manager enables you to retrieve and manage secrets throughout their lifecycle. AWS Secrets Manager also makes it easier to follow the security best practice of using short-term secrets by rotating secrets safely on a schedule that you determine. For example, you can configure Secrets Manager to rotate a database credential daily, turning a typical long-term secret in to a short-term secret that is rotated automatically. To learn more about Secrets Manager, visit the documentation or read our blogs on Store, Distribute, and Rotate Credentials Securely and Rotate Amazon RDS database credentials automatically with Secrets Manager.
