Today, AWS announces the general availability of Customer Managed Key (CMK) support in AWS CodeCommit as part of the AWS Key Management Service (KMS). Customer managed keys are KMS keys that customers create, manage and own. This capability allows customers to use customer managed keys instead of AWS KMS keys to encrypt CodeCommit repositories at rest.

Customer managed keys allow the customer full control over their keys, including managing policies, grants, tags and aliases. Customer managed keys can be defined and managed in the AWS KMS Management Console. If a customer has existing CMKs already in use for other AWS services, they can now be used for AWS CodeCommit as well.

CodeCommit support for CMK is available in all 29 CodeCommit regions.
