Interaction protocol

KMS API requests are HTTPS POST and GET request messages.

SSLv2 and SSLv3 are not supported. TLS1.0 and later versions are supported.

Request method

A POST or GET request is a URL encoded with the parameter value that the interface you access requires.

Request parameters

For each request, the operation to be executed, namely, the Action parameters (for example, CreateKey), must be specified. Each operation must include the Common parameters and the specific request parameters of the specified operations.

Character encoding

Requests and returned results are both encoded using UTF-8.
