The intermediate KMS server performs the action requested if it has access to the necessary managed key and returns the response to the KMS client. If it does not have access to the necessary managed key, the intermediate KMS server transmits a request for the managed key to the central KMS server. The intermediate KMS server receives the managed key, performs the action requested, and returns the response to the KMS client.
