FSx Windows file system without CMK

Compliance Frameworks


FSx for Windows File Server is a fully managed Windows File System that can be used to move Windows-based applications that require file storage to AWS cloud. By default, your Amazon FSx data is encrypted at rest using an AWS-managed key. However, you have the option to configure your Windows File Server file system for: '{AwsFsxFileSystem}' to encrypt data using customer-managed keys. Only CMKs give you the ability to fully manage your encryption keys, including policies, encryption rotation, access, tags and more.
