How to enable FIPS endpoint on govcloud KMS?


Documentation here ( says 'use FIPS endpoint for your region', but I can't find any information on how to configure or enable it. I'm using this on gov cloud region. Is the FIPS endpoint just there and auto-provisioned like an alias for any service? If there is something needed in the CLI could you kindly provide the syntax?

Here is an example of specifying the FIPS endpoint on the CLI: . aws appstream describe-stacks --endpoint-url Associated documentation.

It is also possible to configure the SDK for FIPS endpoint usage:

To configure a FIPS endpoint set the environment variable set the AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT to true or false to enable or disable FIPS endpoint resolution.

To configure a FIPS endpoint using shared config, set use_fips_endpoint to true or false to enable or disable FIPS endpoint resolution.
