Hi there @mrawesomekid1,

Indeed you are right, the Key management is meant for storing your SSH keys which you could then add to newly created Droplets.

For more information on how to do that, you can take a look at the official documentation here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/add-ssh-keys/

I don’t think that there is direct integration with DigitalOcean and AWS KMS, but you could use a free open-source alternative like the [HashiCorp Vault] (https://www.vaultproject.io/) for example.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
