Control: Ensure Block Storage is encrypted with KYOK


By default, IBM Cloud Block Storage provides provider-managed encryption for all data. For enhanced security, customers can bring their own encryption keys and manage them through IBM Key Management Service – Hyper Protect Crypto Services (HPCS). The customer can chose to use BYOK instead of provider-managed keys for enhanced security.


You will not be able to change encryption option once data is already written to a Cloud Block Storage Volume. In order to ensure that objects are encrypted using customer managed keys you will need to create a new Cloud Block Storage volume, set it to use either Key Protect or Hyper Protect key management service and then upload/copy the existing objects to this new volume.
