Using IAM with Cloud KMS

This topic shows how to manage access to Cloud KMS resources.

Overview

To manage access to Cloud KMS resources, such as keys and key rings, you grant Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles. You can grant or restrict the ability to perform specific cryptographic operations, such as rotating a key or encrypting data. You can grant IAM roles on:

  • A key directly
  • A key ring, inherited by all keys in that key ring
  • A Google Cloud project, inherited by all keys in the project
  • A Google Cloud folder, inherited by all keys in all projects in the folder
  • A Google Cloud organization, inherited by all keys in folders in the organization

For a complete list of Cloud KMS actions and IAM roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles. For a complete list of Cloud KMS resources and how they relate to each other, see Cloud KMS resources.

Before you begin

To complete these tasks, you need permission to administer Cloud KMS resources in the Google Cloud project. The Cloud KMS Admin role (roles/cloudkms.admin) includes the required permissions.

  1. Sign in to your Google Cloud account. If you're new to Google Cloud, create an account to evaluate how our products perform in real-world scenarios. New customers also get $300 in free credits to run, test, and deploy workloads.
  2. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  3. Make sure that billing is enabled for your Cloud project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  4. Enable the required API.

    Enable the API

  5. Install and initialize the Cloud SDK.
  6. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  7. Make sure that billing is enabled for your Cloud project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  8. Enable the required API.

    Enable the API

  9. Install and initialize the Cloud SDK.
  10. Create a key ring and key.
  11. Get the resource IDs for the key ring, key, and key version.

Only IAM principals with Owner (roles/owner) or Cloud KMS Admin (roles/cloudkms.admin) roles can grant or revoke access to Cloud KMS resources.

Granting roles on a resource

The following example grants a role that provides access to a Cloud KMS key:

gcloud

To use Cloud KMS on the command line, first Install or upgrade to the latest version of Cloud SDK.

gcloud kms keys add-iam-policy-binding key \
    --keyring key-ring \
    --location location \
    --member principal-type:principal-email \
    --role roles/role

Replace key with the name of the key. Replace key-ring with the name of the key ring where the key is located. Replace location with the Cloud KMS location for the key ring. Replace principal-type and principal-email with the type of principal and the principal's email address. Replace role with the name of the role to add.

C#

To run this code, first set up a C# development environment and install the Cloud KMS C# SDK.


using Google.Cloud.Iam.V1;
using Google.Cloud.Kms.V1;

public class IamAddMemberSample
{
    public Policy IamAddMember(
      string projectId = "my-project", string locationId = "us-east1", string keyRingId = "my-key-ring", string keyId = "my-key",
      string member = "user:foo@example.com")
    {
        // Create the client.
        KeyManagementServiceClient client = KeyManagementServiceClient.Create();

        // Build the resource name.
        CryptoKeyName resourceName = new CryptoKeyName(projectId, locationId, keyRingId, keyId);

        // The resource name could also be a key ring.
        // var resourceName = new KeyRingName(projectId, locationId, keyRingId);

        // Get the current IAM policy.
        Policy policy = client.GetIamPolicy(resourceName);

        // Add the member to the policy.
        policy.AddRoleMember("roles/cloudkms.cryptoKeyEncrypterDecrypter", member);

        // Save the updated IAM policy.
        Policy result = client.SetIamPolicy(resourceName, policy);

Revoking access to a resource

To remove a principal's access to a Cloud KMS key:

gcloud

To use Cloud KMS on the command line, first Install or upgrade to the latest version of Cloud SDK.

gcloud kms keys remove-iam-policy-binding key \
    --keyring key-ring \
    --location location \
    --member principal-type:principal-email \
    --role roles/role-name

Replace key with the name of the key. Replace key-ring with the name of the key ring where the key is located. Replace location with the Cloud KMS location for the key ring. Replace principal-type and principal-email with the type of principal and the principal's email address. Replace role-name with the name of the role to remove.

For information on all flags and possible values, run the command with the --help flag.

Viewing permissions on a resource

To view the IAM policy for a Cloud KMS key:

gcloud

To use Cloud KMS on the command line, first Install or upgrade to the latest version of Cloud SDK.

gcloud kms keys get-iam-policy key \
    --keyring key-ring \
    --location location

Replace key with the name of the key. Replace key-ring with the name of the key ring where the key is located. Replace location with the Cloud KMS location for the key ring.

For information on all flags and possible values, run the command with the --help flag.

Principle of least privilege

To practice the principle of least privilege, grant the most limited set of permissions to the lowest object in the resource hierarchy.

  • To grant a principal permissions to encrypt (but not decrypt) data, grant the roles/cloudkms.cryptoKeyEncrypter role on the key.

  • To grant a principal permissions to encrypt and decrypt data, grant the roles/cloudkms.cryptoKeyEncrypterDecrypter role on the key.

  • To grant a principal permissions to verify (but not sign) data, grant the roles/cloudkms.publicKeyViewer role on the key.

  • To grant a principal permissions to sign and verify data, grant the roles/cloudkms.signerVerifier role on the key.

  • To grant a principal permissions to manage a key, grant the roles/cloudkms.admin role on the key.

This is not an exhaustive list. See Cloud KMS permissions and roles for a full list of permissions and roles.

Hierarchy and inheritance

Policy bindings can be specified on the project, key ring, key, import job, and other Cloud KMS resources.

Since keys belong to key rings, and key rings belong to projects, a principal with a specific role or permission at a higher level in that hierarchy inherits the same permissions on the child resources. That is, a user who has the role of owner on a project is also an owner on all the key rings and keys in that project. Similarly, if a user is granted the cloudkms.admin role on a key ring, they have the associated permissions on all the keys in that key ring.

The inverse is not true; that is, a user who has a permission on a key but does not have the permission on the parent key ring has no permissions on that key ring.
