What is Google Cloud Key Management?

Google Cloud External Key Management (EKM) allows you to create, store, and manage keys in a separate environment from encrypted data, using Futurex’s FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated key management technology. 

Using Futurex's integrated key management service, you can enhance data privacy, access control, and key provenance and maintain control over your own encryption keys.


Flexible deployment


  • Secure: FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated
  • Compliant: regional data residency, privacy, and sovereignty mandates
  • Resilient: deploy high-availability configurations with uptimes of 99.999%

Straightforward setup

Futurex’s solution integrates with all Google Cloud services supported by their KMS.

1. Log in to KMES Series 3 interface

2. Configure users, keys, and JWT 

3. Log in to Google KMS dashboard

4. Create a new key ring

5. Create externally managed keys in Google KMS

6. Test encryption and decryption operations with externally managed keys
