Default Master Key

A Default Master Key is automatically created by another cloud service using KMS, such as Object Storage Service (OBS). The alias of a Default Master Key ends with /default.

You can use the management console to query the status of Default Master Keys, but cannot disable or schedule the deletion of Default Master Keys.
