Are all re-bundled AMIs available to the public? What is this about "public" and "private" AMIs? And why so much worry about leaving "your keys" on the AMI after re-bundling?

Is it safe to create an AMI with sensitive data on it? Will anybody else be able to use my AMIs in the future?

No, all created AMIs are private by default.

Yay, me.
