AWS KMS Encryption/Decryption Script

As a follow up to my blog post on Keeping Secrets in Chef with AWS Key Managment Service I wanted to post an updated script that can be used to encrypt/decrypt sensitive information. I’ve updated the following script to allow for a few parameters. Specifically:

-e --encrypt STRING (encrypt the specified string)
-d --decrypt STRING (decrypt the specified string)
-k --key KEY (full ARN or Key ID to be used to encrypt/decrypt)
-r --region REGION (region the key is located in)

You can find the script in my GitHub repo here, feel free to use it to encrypt/decrypt your sensitive information.
